    It started out simple enough. I had a bunch of flower patterned fabric and nothing to do with it. Started cutting and thought 1: this is going to be a fun quilt. Started laying out 2: the what was i thinking quilt. Then pieced it 3: the this could really be cooler than i thought.

    4: The i love this quilt!!! so without further adu!....

    The "Flowers" Scrap Quilt! (for when real flowers arent enough to fix what you did) XD

    spent the day at my parents house and they helped by holding it up for me. they love the quilt especially my dad!

    i had left over scraps and not enough black. it worked out very nicely XD. I used pinstripe quilting and in between i used a leaf design to go down as well. I like the way the green leaves quilting popped and blended at the same time. I used blue pastel thread for the inner pinstripes and pink pastel for the outers. I loved the way it all popped! Hope yall do too!

    I like the different widths of the strips. Nice way to make up for the lack of enough backing material. I think the whole thing came out great.

    I love the strips on the back of the quilt. It makes the backing fun too.
