I'm taking a cue from Anna Maria Horner and attempting my own version of her gathering flowers quilt. I stumbled across her scrappy version one day and had to have one of my own. Even if it meant making it myself.
So I set to work. Ordered the pattern and bought the fabric (Dowry, True Colors and a bit of Innocent Crush already in my stash) at Mad About Patchwork and began tracing and cutting out pattern pieces onto card stock.
This is where I'm at.
Out of all of those pieces up on my design wall, I have one quarter of a block actually sewn together. Bravo, Laura. Bravo.
The process is slow. Partly because I don't have a lot of spare time to work on my own wish list. Partly because the curved piecing is a bit tedious. But the end result will be worth it. I swear.
My goal for February is to sew four blocks together. And I'm linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes for some serious motivation (and accountability) to make this happen. Wish me luck. I'm gonna need it!
