Pot of Blooms - a Happy Quilt
|Pot of Blooms|
When I taught classes in the Intown Quilters shop in Atlanta, there were so many wonderful fabrics by Lake House that begged to become happy quilts. This one almost made itself - the blooms just wanted to dance on that Spring-green background. I cut them out and fused them over those awesome striped stems and those pots? Guess what? They're half hexagons - oh, yes they are!
This is on the cover of my 2014 wall calendar. I think it's the quilt for May (I lose track). But do you remember what else I did with these large flower motifs?
I used the center leaf shaped template that's part of my EZ Double Wedding Ring pattern set. I cut out all those teardrop shapes and surrounded a bold bloom with a black/white batik. Fused, appliqued, done. That's my kind of block!
