Isn't it pretty? Thank you Melissa for a terrific pattern, and a fun quilt-along! I'm thinking I might want to host one myself--anyone interested? A Fourth of July project, maybe?
Next up is the Book of the Month quilt. I chose the pattern Flowers for Nana Girl from the book Scrap Quilting Strip by Strip by Kim Brackett.
I'm making the flowers in different prints of yellow. And to be different, all the centers will have the same dark, golden yellow.
Happily following the directions, and sewing along, I realized after starting five of the flowers, that I was not sewing the background triangles in. I was using the dark, golden yellow in both spots, which does not give me the effect I want. Oops!
Starting all over, these are now the correct starts.
Prettier too, with that background fabric! Hmm, now I have to figure out what to do with the first batch!
After adding a few more strips, and sewing the units together, the flower emerges!
Today, I'm on to making the sashing strips and sewing the whole thing together for a really pretty baby quilt.
What are you up to today?
