My DIL saw a quilt similar to this in a book I got a year ago at Christmas. She liked it and said "if you ever...I'd like this". So I got the pattern, didn't like the way the flowers were made so it got laid aside. Recently someone showed me how to make the flower petals using a 5 inch square of fabric--they were easy and fun to do. I made yo-yo's for the center and topped it off with a button.
I used 2 layers of batting so it would be puffy and then just did in the ditch quilting. The up close pictures are much truer in color. The full quilt picture didn't turn out so well!
This will be her Christmas present for 2010. I'll have a hard time not showing it to her before then!
