    floral squares

    Someone gave me a box of floral fabric long time ago. I saw this quilt somewhere and I decided to do a king size utilitarian quilt for my bed, machine pieced and quilted on a regular size Jenome ( I will never machine quilt another king size quilt!). I pieced the backing with more floral fabric, I like the end result, but I still have a box full of floral fabric.

    Beautiful! What size did it finally come out? I want to make a King size but I want the sides to hang down like yours.

    That looks wonderful! I love patchwork quilts like yours. You did a great job. That is a fantastic collection of floral prints. Were they saving for a watercolor quilt?

    That is really pretty. I am drawn to floral prints. Perhaps I should do something like that. I really love it.

    Love your quilt. I'm picturing you pulling that quilt through your sewing machine. I don't know how you did it.

    My friend challenged us to use only floral fabric and a background if needed. I had a large heavy Rubbermaid bin full of florals. I have now made six large floral quilts and have given away many floral strips with my favourite floral pattern and I still have a large heavy bin of florals in addition to the dozens of 3 1/2" floral strips that I have cut. Do floral fabrics grow in the night?

    These pretty floral quilts -- like your lovely one -- always remind me of nap time at grandma's, perhaps out on the screened porch.

    Oh yes....this is such a romantic, nostalgic, cozy, wonderful quilt. I would never have thought to put those florals all together this way - but my gosh.....it is just SO pretty !!!
    Of all the things i've lost, i miss my mind the most.

    This quilt is so pretty. I love the floral, and the simplicity of the patch work.

    It turned out nice! I made some charity quilts with florals--they are also pretty (not only as charity quilts--just pretty for use with florals.) Here's one idea. If you already have cut squares, it would go together quickly.

    Very nice! I sometimes wonder what to do with all those older florals. This looks great. Thanks for sharing. You did a great job with the fabrics and the quilting. It is a beautiful quilt.
