    Of course this is a Ricky Tims design, but I've had this floral fabric since 1995. I've made 2 other wall hangings from it which I didn't particularly like. I REALLY LOVE THIS ONE!! What would you call it?

    Wow! Absolutely gorgeous!

    I am in the process of trying to make my first Convergence, and read in the book, you can use floral, but I could not picture what it would look like - the answer - beautiful!

    Snoopy questions,
    1-how big is the repeat on your fabric?
    2-did you use a solid black, solid yellow, the background and the floral as a 4 patch to begin?

    I don't mind your questions at all !! The repeat is 24". I used 4 fabrics for the HC center. The black is solid cotton sateen. The gold is cotton sateen jacquard. The light print is plain cotton. I started with an 18" square of each fabric for the HC center. The finished center measures 23 1/2". The whole thing is 36".
    It is easy to do. The hardest thing is matching up all the seams when you do the second time of sewing strips. It would be easier to re-press the seam allowances so they can butt up together, then pin each seam. I tried to sew without pinning, and some of my seams don't match.
    You can't really see the jacquard in this close-up.

    This is just an inspiring wall hanging! Great choice of color and fabric.

    No idea for a name but it sure is an interesting quilt and the more I look, the better I like.
