This quilt finished at 58"x58", a nice larger lap quilt. The flowers were all hand appliqued and cut from wool. I found the wool at my local craft stores and thrift stores......some were initially pants. It's funny because I made the four detailed squares first, without a clue what they would become. They just looked so fun to make. Later, they asked to be made into a quilt, which I happily did. Of course, the finishing work was done by my "pro" quilter, who owns a long-arm machine. I'm still too coward to free motion quilt something this large.
The "quilt along" will be my first. I am completely committed to trying out my hand at free motion quilting for that project. I'm actually looking forward to it.
