The fabrics were so pretty, I did not want to cut them up into tiny pieces and lose the gorgeous large scale designs. So, I stacked the fat quarters and cut off a rectangle strip on one end to make them into 18" squares. (I saved those cut off strips for a future project!! ) Then I divided them into pairs and drew a line diagonally across them and sewed 1/4" on each side of that line, cut them apart on the line, pressed them and sewed them together again making a simple four-triangle block.
After it was all quilted, I added the raw-edge appliqued flowers on all the block centers and corners with a raw edged strip of bright yellow fabric stitched into a curl on every flower.
I bound the quilt then washed it -which I never do!!! But I wanted the raw edges on the flowers to fluff, which they sure did! The quilt looks really old now... all wrinkly and textured! So it is done and ready to put out for spring!
SO, WHERE IS SPRING????
