Thinking of spring
Awhile back I bought all I needed to make this springy looking wall hanging with pansies. So yesterday I got it all cut out. Here are my labeled strips on the first cutting. Alot of the strips are sewed together in a certain order, then recut to be turned this way and that to create the desired blocks.
Here is the 3 finished squares. Sorry the color sucks. That really is a pretty dark purple and the center blocks are a lighter purple print. The green has a glitter look and is real bright. I will take a pic of the finished product out in the sunlight. I still have the 4 squares to make the applique pansies. That is the topic for our quilt club in Jan. So I will wait and get some expert advice on how to do that part.
