With Bunnies, and Butterflies, and Birds, Oh My! complete, I had a box empty. And you know what that means …
I get to start a new quilt project! I also want to make both of my niece’s a quilt for their birthdays, and since Rowan’s is up first in June, there’s no time like the present to get started on it!
I’ve had this Riley Blake “Meow” Layer Cake kicking around for a while, and the colours are perfect for Rowan. I settled on the Flower Girl quilt, and got to work.
I pulled out the fabrics that would create the most contrast, and dug through the stash for a nice yellow fabric for the centres and got cutting.
Mom, ever the Queen of Gadgets, gave me this little template that sticks to your machine, allowing you to sew HSTs, and snowball squares without drawing lines. It saves a lot of time.
An afternoon of chain piecing saw all my petals completed. Now I just have to sew them into flowers. But let’s save that for another day!
