Recently I saw a flower quilt that intrigued me. Their flower petals flipped down, I thought they needed to stand up. After playing around with different rulers, Dresden plate to name one, I think I ended up just whacking at a piece of paper because I wanted the petals bigger than the white areas. Don’t forget to add your seam allowances back in! The stem and leaves worked out pretty much the same way. Definitely designed on point, but what to do. I probably tried 7 different layouts; this one with a simple sashing was the clear winner. Quilted with a ruler in the petals and a medium-small meander in the white. I left the leaves to poof.
I saw a picture of a bright colorful quilt and thought I’d like to try to make one. I wanted to use leftover military fabrics of tanks, helicopters and Jeep’s for center row. I’m not sure how well I like how mine turned out with these fabrics. I hope I like it better once it’s quilted. I had a small piece of this fabric left from a quilt I made in March. I thought I would use it all up here but still have a small amount left. It’s not enough for binding unless I make a scrappy binding and that may be just what I end up doing as I hate waste. If anyone knows the name of the pattern I’d like to know so put it in a sticker note please. Thank you- Toogie
