Next project - floral 15 patch

I will start off by saying I am not a floral person, but I made a quilt with a lot of floral fabric back in 2010 and I have some leftovers. This is on my UFO list to use up these strips and leftovers.

The strips are 2 1/2" and I kind of laid them out in sets of two.

I cut the strips in half and put them in sets of four strips

After sewing together the sets, I pressed my seams in one direction and then pressed the unit in half.

Lining up the ruler, I then cut 2 1/2" sections

Here are the two blocks I got out of this unit. They are ready to sew together.

Here are the blocks I have done so far. I will have to dig around my fabric storage room to see if I can find a few more floral fabrics to add to this quilt. This will be another baby quilt to add to the stash.

As of right now I am not going any where for Thanksgiving so I will have lots of time in the studio. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

I'm not typically a floral person either but I find if the fabric is cut up small enough, it works for me. The exception of course is Kaffe Fassett fabrics. . . Haven't met one I didn't love ;) haha

I hope you have a wonderful and relaxing time in your studio! Sounds like the best way to spend Thanksgiving to me! Can't wait to see all that you get up to!
