I got this fabric to sew to the top of the squares, my flowers will go on it.
I did get my rick rack sewn to the top and the top sewn to the bottom. Did that make sense? I didn't think so. ;)After a brief chat with Pat Sloan I feel much better about the top border not being the same as the bottom. I still have squares to add to each side border and lots more flowers to make.
I'll have lots of time to make flowers over the next few wks as I am babysitting 4 days /wk for the next 3 wks.

These will become flowers for my quilt that does not have a name. There are 60 triangles in the box and I will have 12 flowers when I'm done. Betsy showed the flowers on the black/white red quilt she made for her daughter. The instructions for the flowers can be found at Natalie Ross's blog.

The picture is going the wrong way. Sorry. The squares will run across the bottom of the quilt, well, the bottom of the part that lays on the mattress.

Remember me telling you Betsy sent me this package of 12 fat qtrs and asked me to make something for myself. As I was looking through the magazines, I held the pkg of fat qtrs in my lap. I was searching for a pattern that I could use the fat qtrs. Finally, I saw this. And I remembered that I had this.
Well my panel wasn't big enough sew I changed mine up just a bit. I cut the fat qtrs into 3 1/2" strips which eventually turned into 3 " squares.
After adding some of the squares, this is what it looked like and I was not happy. So I spent the morning doing the reverse stitch. On to plan B

Remember this quilt top? This is the quilt top that my quilt group was doing as a BOM when I moved from NM. The group has long since finished their tops and some even have them quilted. Well, I've been working on mine again.
Block 7 was School Days and was lots of fun since it was applique'.
Block 8 is applique' with a tad of embroidery.
