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 because...tada...it'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.
(Yes, gecko fans, there IS a gecko in this quilt too!)
