So I was totally impressed with Jane Brocket's carefully curated botanical fabric choices in a quilt she was putting together. I found it after Anna Maria Horner shared the picture in her feed earlier this year. I knew I had many of the fabrics already including a 1/2 metre of the a rose print from Snow Leopard designs for Free Spirit fabrics that I had found at a thrift store last summer for 50 cents. I almost destashed it in January but pulled it back out and held on to it. Inspiration hit! I collected a few more prints, found many in my stash already and started cutting up all these flowers into 8.5" squares. I tried as much as possible to capitalize on the flowers when I cut it all up. Then I had to place it all on the design wall for maximum impact. And this is a biggie, people. And it is on the bed. It sleeps well and is a burst of colour for summer. Super simple quilting in Aurifil 50 wt, off white. Happiness.
