Finally! Since the idea was conceived in December, this very quilt has been stewing and stewing in my brain. Oh, the release of starting a long-awaiting project! More on colors and fabrics to come - much more!
This pattern is Anna Maria Horner's Gathering Flowers quilt. Seems like it's been out for awhile, but I haven't seen it around. I know I wasn't originally interested when it debuted, but as soon as Anna shared her scrappy version I saw its potential and made a mental bookmark.
With any luck, I'll gather a few flowers this weekend. But for now I have a date with some fabrics for my Color Intensive Color Catalog. Oh, and Aria and I need to organize and purge her room this weekend, which could be a rather strenuous and time-consuming event... Anyone else have a 9-year-old that seems as independent as a teenager already? It's truly intimidating to parent someone who can be more persistent and driven than me. Imagine Rachel on super-kid-powers. Oi. But, at least I have this happy flower. It's a start, and I will be persistent too.
Happy weekend all!
