I wrote her for details.

She graciously shared her know-how with me and I made up an all floral quilt--made of scraps.

I already had 3.5" strips cut up so all I had to do was cut them into 6.5" lengths and I already had a lot of 3" strips, which I used for the smaller side.

Since you put the squares together totally randomly, that didn't require too much thinking either so I could focus on watching Poland get a couple of golds!

I have plenty more 3.5" strips and other scraps to easily make another. Every single print is floral.

Here is the block: 6.5" square. The larger segments start out cut 3.5" x 6.5" and the sashings (white) are all finished 1" (I used 1.5" strips--I did have to cut that). The right side I used 3" strips, 1.5" sashing, sewed them together and then subcut into 2.5" segments.

and the layout as EQ6 suggested--but really, mine is pretty random.

I really appreciate Sherry helping me with the directions! I love how it turned out. Maybe I'll try it again only using black--as soon as the local store gets black back in stock. (Hopefully on Monday.)

Finished size: 96.5" square.
