    On Point Flowers

    This red fabric was in the donation stash last year and I never snagged it. We were reorganizing the stash early this week and this popped up again. It was hard to find just the right colors to go with it, but it turned out alright. At first, I was going to use three colors for the outer squares and put the red in each 'diamond'. However, that looked just too busy. Thus, the simplified version.

    Looks like Spring!
    Be sure to show it to us when you've quilted it.

    I like it! I'd use a hot pink or red thread to quilt little motifs in the white blocks. That would bounce the color even more.

    Thanks for all the kind comments. I don't usually do this much work for donation quilts, but I loved the fabric and the design seemed to fit it.
