Now that I've worked with this block, I see other possibilities. I can visualize the base/pot being shorter and the color of your choice with greenery at the top and maybe curly leaves hanging down or have circle handles on the vase part with green leaves in the pot or green leaves and a colored bud in the center. I thought of these possibilities as I stitched this block and there are probably others.
I'm still happy with the block I have. I appreciate all the blocks for this Benjamin Biggs quilt available through Just Takes 2. Every other month a block pattern is available at either sentimentalstitches.com or dearjane.com.
