Sometimes it's nice to take a breather from work intensive blocks. I wanted to make an easy quilt with my Flora layer cake. Not sure what pattern to use, I googled "easy layer cake quilt." You need to know that I was a research librarian of sorts so I know all these neat tricks. (Please read humor into that). And I found this youtube video. Double Slice is a great pattern for new quilters and would even make a fast baby quilt if you used just half the layer cake. There are a few pesky fabrics in the Flora collection. Do you see the pops of orange and green? I had a heck of a time spacing them. And I'm not sure I succeeded. I'm going to border the quilt with solid white and bind it with just the right shade of blue. I'm hoping the binding will pull out the other colors in the quilt. I'll show it to you when it's quilted.
I don't know if anyone heard me squeal with delight when I discovered that Madame Parfait included two of my Solstice Stars in her Star Block Inspiration. They're the two blocks bottom and center.
And I would like to thank everyone who participated in my first giveaway. It was so much fun to read all the comments and to make new friends. Because that's what this is all about.
