Friday Flower Calla Lily

Calla Lilies are very unique in their shape and are quite different to many flowers I have seen. This is one of the reasons I am very fond of them. I made a full quilt of Calla Lilies a few years ago called "Light Upon the Earth" and wrote a blog post about their creation too.

This morning I was reading Jennifer Houlden's daily blog post (yes she does the daily challenge too). She had stumbled upon a paper towel, but it wasn't just a paper towel, it had a rather interesting design on it. Check out her blog post.
