"Tessie" Flower Pattern by Amy McClellan

A long time ago I purchased the pattern "Tessie" designed by Amy McClellan/Under The Garden Moon. These flowers are super easy to do. There are 2 sizes of flowers and I chose the small version.

This quilt pattern is perfect for small scraps.

I had so much fun finding bits of fabric that looked nice together.

All the background pieces are different and no 2 flowers are the same.

Ridiculously fun to make!!

I love the kittens in the background of this one.

I think this one is my favorite.

I couldn't resist just a touch of fussy cutting.....

.....because fussy cutting is fun too.

I love this digitally printed border fabric, "Joy of Life" by Sylvie Demers, and to preserve the selvage info I used it as part of the hanging sleeve. I dare the quilt police to come after me for it!

I sewed a line of machine quilting from the front to hold the lower edge of the sleeve to the quilt (because I really didn't want to do it by HAND). The loose white part hanging down below the stitching won't unravel's the selvage. Yay.

For the quilt label, I made one of the large size flowers and sewed it onto the backing fabric before quilting.

There are so many of my favorite fabrics in this quilt!!!
(Yes, gecko fans, there IS a gecko in this quilt too!)
