    Just starting to assemble the quilt for my granddaughter, couldn't wait for ALL the blocks to be done to see how it's going to look.

    I love it. :-D The colors are so bright and cheerful, perfect for a 9 year old girl's bedroom and it matches all the bedroom accessories that my daughter got her for their new house.

    That is going to be very pretty. Love all the colors. Are you machine appliquéing the flowers on the center block?

    I'll have more yummy colors together very soon. Almost half the blocks are done, half the sashing is cut out, etc At least half a quilt should be done this weekend!

    Yes, they are machine appliqued. I am using Sharon Schamber's raw edge applique method. It is really easy and quick using fabric glue on the edges instead of fusable (which I don't like using).

    Nice and I love the way you did what will be triangles - made them squares and, I'm assuming, you will just trim them to make them into triangles???

    Wow, I like the colors and will be great when you get it all done. Do you know how you are going to quilt it yet?

    Decisions? Decisions?

    Yes, the square sashing blocks will be trimmed to 1/4" along with the edge triangles when it's done.

    I am thinking of outline quilting of the petals, the inner and outer row. Maybe just continue that outline in echo quilting the entire block. Haven't decided about the sashing yet. Maybe just a continuous line with 4-petal flowers to look a little like the block flowers.

    Of course I'll post as it is constructed. :-D I have everything cut out except for 52 white flower petals (have 3 strips of fabric ready for them). 13 of the blocks are totally done, 3 more are ready to machine applique.

    I am making 2 blocks of each color so I separated them into two batches of 16. I also separated the colored petals into two batches, there will be two flowes of each color.

    Pittsburgpam: your machine raw-edge applique looks very neat. I was just watching Sharon's video on this and hadn't tried it yet. (I have a quilt top done that needs flowers appliqued on it, and have been debating whether to turn under and machine quilt or do raw edge.) Some machine applique books say to use tear-away stabilizer, but I don't want to do this if I don't need to. Did you use stabilizer on yours??
