Flower Maze Quilt
Garden Maze is finished and makes me want spring flowers blooming in my yard. It is March and instead we have 5 inches of snow.
I wanted to take pictures outside and thought this pile of snow would work…..of course there was a little wind blowing……
Okay, I did want to show the back. I was able to use a couple of green fabrics that had been in my stash a very long time.
Lets try it on the snow covered steps…..nope not working.
Flower Maze Quilt
This quilt is 50 x 62 inches. I think I started the floral blocks about 2 years ago, making one or two at a time. Many of them are made using my Sizzix Big Shot die cutter and floral dies. The blocks started out as neutral string pieced blocks and then I started doing some free motion applique flowers.
I don’t remember where the light green print fabric came from…..I think it may have been one that was in my mom’s stash. I remember starting the blocks and when I pulled them out this week I realized I only had enough left to make a few more blocks. That is how I decided what size to make this quilt….when I ran out of fabric….I stopped. My original plan was to put the blocks on the diagonal but I still really like this. I quilted it on my vintage 15-91 Singer.
I have a post here that shows some of the blocks I was working on in April of 2012.
I had to show one more photo of my spirals in the snow and it was funny how many people said it looked like a crop circle….that was what I was thinking when I made it….just couldn’t remember what it was called.
I also got a better photo of a tow boat pushing barges down the Mississippi River in the snow. It would have been neat if my quilt had been lying on the deck rail. Note to self: remember this for another quilt.
March 7th and I already have my March UFO done! That has to be a record! I guess I will be skipping the mid month check in for A Lovely Year of Finishes and will wait to link at the end of the month to the Finishes Party.
