This is the block pattern for the floral quilt I am making, the blocks are set 3 X 4 with sashing in floral and muslin. The pattern is called 'Antique Cutie' and is from Terry Martin's book, Focus on Florals. I've just laid out the bay leaves so you can see the rough layout, I think I've cut up about 46 different floral fabrics for the bay leaves and the sashing strips so I think it qualifies as scrappy, but surprise, surprise, doesn't make much of a dent in the stash.
One thing I would like some advice on...when I iron the leaves down properly and go round the edges, what colour should I use for thread. In the book she seems to use black, which I think would be the traditional colour, with a machine blanket stitch. My machine doesn't do blanket stitch so it will be a widish zig-zag. I think black will be too stark, but what are the alternatives? I'm currently thinking green or maybe even red.
This has taken me the longest time to cut, yet it doesn't seem much when you look at the pieces in their zip-lok bags. I don't expect to make much progress for a couple of weeks as we are off again on another break soon, this time to Berlin. Yes, that's right, Berlin, that well-known holiday destination. Don't ask, my DH has always wanted to go there so where he leads, we follow!
