This is my March UFO project for OMG (yes, I have joined the One Monthly Goal 2016 Link up over at Red Letter Quilts) and the APQ 2016 UFO Challenge. This is called Audrey's Flowers, named after the quilt that Audrey of Quilty Folk made called Happy Flowers.
My quilt is a little different with four flower blocks joined together as seen above...
And a circle appliqued in the middle. Shhh... this design element helps to hide any mis-matched stems...
and reduces the bulk in the center of the block.
This is an earlier photo. I now have all the blocks completed and just have to sew them together, along with some setting triangles... and a border.
So I am looking forward to working on this quilt this month. It just feels like Spring with all those flowers!
I started this quilt toward the end of 2014. You can see the original post here.
I am linking up at OMG - One Monthly Goal 2016 Link up. I am very excited to head over there to see all the other March projects that other quilters are working on!! I know some of my blogland friends are linking up as well. You should stop by too!
Beautiful quilt in progress! The circle idea is one I must remember, a good one.ReplyDelete
Those are great flowers and your center design element fits right in. Quilter's are so skillful at figuring out ways of adapting the circumstances. Have fun working on this project. It's super cute.ReplyDelete
So happy you brought these out to play again! I love these flowers and can't wait to see how you finish.ReplyDelete
what a charming quilt - I love pomegranate quilts and the grey works so well with your fun prints.ReplyDelete
Love this quilt! These flowers are so fun and your polka dot background is perfect. It's great to see them in this setting.:)ReplyDelete
What fun! The charcoal background makes the bright flowers pop. I loved Audrey's original and I love this arrangement, too.ReplyDelete
