    Quick Watercolor Quilt

    I am in love with this method! My sister sent me an older book, published in 1999, called "Quick Watercolor Quilts, the fuse, fold and stitch method, by Dina Pappas. It took me two afternoons to arrange all the flower pieces, but once arranged on fusible sheer-weight interfacing, the rest went like a breeze and was completed in about an hour. What fun it was! The photos don't show the inner border color well; it's a bright light bright leaf green that blends well with the light green in the leaves, and the outer border is almost magenta in color. All the squares are 2", the inner border is 2" and the outer border is 4" in width. The entire quilt measures about 22" square. Now that it's done I see a couple of misplaced flower squares, but guess I'll be the only one to notice it. lol Not on to the sandwich and quilting.
