Default Flowers for my granddaughter

I made my own jelly roll using only 5 grey fabrics. I cut them 3 1/2 inches wide. I placed a square of bright fabric between each strip. Then it was sewn together like a jelly roll quilt. I used scraps of fabric from my granddaughter's quilt to make the flower pot, the leaves and the flowers. The border consists of odd sized rectangles sewn together -- again leftovers from her quilt. Just got it back from the quilter a couple weeks ago. I'm very pleased with the way it turned out. One of my "visions" actually turned out!

before you speak T.H.I.N.K. T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?
Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
