I bought this fabric back in the late ’80s, I think.
I don’t remember how much I bought, maybe a yard or two. There’s not much left — just two pieces, one about 9″ x 20″, the other about 5-1/2″ x 7″.
I bought it, along with some other fabric, to make a sampler quilt. I did make a number of blocks. I may have sewn them together into a top, but I’m not sure.
Even though I really liked this fabric — and still do — I wasn’t thrilled with the blocks. This was early in my quiltmaking, and I think that the other fabrics I chose for the blocks weren’t a good fit, or I hadn’t used this fabric to best effect.
Eventually, I donated the blocks to a quilt group to make into a quilt for charity.
But every time I sift through my bin of floral prints, this one never fails to catch my eye.
I cut into it sparingly. This weekend, I cut out some hexagons and half-hexagons for a Grandmother’s Flower Garden block.
