Blue Hibiscus

My friend's husband makes the nicest seam rippers with hand turned handles made on a lathe. I have one, and let me tell you, I make good use of it. I have a couple of quilting friends that would like one too so I was thinking....... my friend F, grows exotic looking blue hibiscus. What if I painted two 6 1/2" cotton squares with blue hibiscus? Note the start of one below, which is painted with thickened dye but not yet rinsed.  Could there be a trade in the future?

I'd be hard pressed to say who's the luckiest if the trade happened? Just lovely, Eileen!
