I have been wanting to make a quilt for my cousin in England who has been so helpful with my my mother's family line. We meet last May by email and she is a delightful person. I have been tossing around the idea of a quilt for her for about 6 months. First I thought I would make her something Southwest but decided that probably wouldn't be her style. So I finally asked what she would like. She told me she likes flowers but would cherish anything I made. That made me feel good. I remembered I had this simple little pattern and a kit with flowers. I am thinking this is a perfect match!
I started laying out the charm squares, I was suppose to use on the charms included and kind of put lights with the medium shades. I didn't think there was enough contrast, I like contrast. On the border there was some white fabric to make a scalloped shape on the border, so I decided to use white in my blocks. The results are above. I do like it, I used three different white backgrounds. I think it is going to be darling when it is finished.
I am calling this quilt Fresh Picked Flowers. I don't think she reads my quilting blog a lot, so I hope I am safe posting this here. It's not a total surprise, she knows I am making her something.
