    Redroses...yes the entire thing is 2 inch squares....I used a background that blended with the background on the floral fabric .. The rays are quilted, then I quilted around the squares in the cross and in the corners also.

    Thanks!

    I as well only use muslin for my quilts, as well as other things I do. I get it on sale at JoAnns. I buy 3-4 bolts at a time. I use it alot. It gets softer with age . I love it.

    DO you have a pattern at all?
    This would make an excellent bible cover if you made it smaller like the size of a bible!

    Thanks everyone! Nice compliments!

    I did not use a pattern..... Just kind of did it on my own from a picture I found online...what a great idea...a bible cover! Now I might have to try that! LOL

    I think I will try to do one as a bible cover for my big sis....she would like that ....I am just not sure of how to do the pattern around it because the purple flowers I have ...have a dark back ground!
    I will toy with it a while :)

    It will come to you! Thats what happened with all the ones I have done.....IMHO the background plain squares should come close to matching the background of the floral fabric... thats what I try to do.... I plan to make more things like this in the future....a Christmas wreath is on my list! for one thing...and now a bible cover! LOL
