A very floral quilt top

I finished this quilt top last night. If you recall, I started it last month, though I was supposed to be working on Ryan’s This End Up quilt, so I had to put it aside for a while.

I like it because it’s bright and summery, which is so unlike our current Vermont weather (snow, wind, and zero degree temps). Perhaps this is the wrong time of the year for such a quilt, but I’m hoping it will remind me of the nicer weather to come (can a quilt do that? perhaps I’m asking too much…)

I think I cut a flower from every piece of floral fabric I own. The flowers are all different sizes, then framed in white and cut to blocks of 10″ square. For those of you who have asked in the past, I used a solid white which I purchased at JoAnn’s. It’s a 100% cotton sateen. On the bolt, it appears to have a very noticeable pinkish hue, though luckily this seems to go away (somehow!) when used.

I need to figure out something for the back and maybe I’ll find some time for some quilting this weekend.

I’m looking forward to seeing this one finished!
