I finally figured out what to do with those sweet posy applique blocks:
I added some super-bright nine-patches! (See, I don't only make brown quilts.) I have more applique and more piecing to do, but I also have some wonderful ideas for the border.
I give away probably 40-50 quilts each year. This one will be saved for a grandbaby. Of mine!When I showed this quilt to my son and daughter-in-love, she loved it. He, however, had a question:
"So, how does this work?"
I said, "Well, you see, you give me a grandbaby, and I give you this quilt." Simple, right?
He gave me that look that only adult sons can give their mothers and said slowly, "But the flower blocks are bigger than the other blocks. How do they fit together?"
I proceeded to explain that when you applique, it's a good idea to make the background square a little larger and then trim it down when you are done. I just hadn't done that yet.
I ended the conversation with, "But I was serious about that grandbaby."
