Flower Treasure

Last Thursday I found a pretty pink flower, binding strips and quilt pattern on the “treasure table*” at my local guild and thought “I’ll make that some day”. But it kept calling to me, so . . . 

 The 70’s live!

Sunday I dug out a jelly roll I bought years ago, grabbed the leftover yellow Grunge from the firefly quilt and made this -

I wasn’t sure what I was going to do with the finished quilt until Jaclyn took one look and started patting the fabric, saying “pretty, pretty!” So, once the flower is stitched down and the borders are on, this one will go live with Jackie. I love it when a plan comes together.

* Treasure table - where guild members drop off fabric remnants and tools/books/stuff they no longer want and other members grab it up take it home for free. A lot of the fabric for my current English paper piecing project came from the treasure table, and whatever I don’t need will go back there.

Jackie's right: pretty, pretty!
