Flowers for Nana Girl

Doesn't this just say happy spring?
Look at those pretty yellow flowers! And my orange clivias blooming in the background. What could be a better way to welcome spring?

This cute pattern, Flowers for Nana Girl,
Flowers for Nana Girl

is from the book Scrap Quilting Strip by Strip by Kim Brackett.

It's a very easy pattern to follow, using either pre-cut strips, or strips cut from stash fabric. 

I made a small version of the quilt, using just nine blocks instead of twenty.

The back is a soft, solid yellow flannel,
to show off the quilting. Here's a closer look, both front and back.

The border was done using a design from 501 Quilting Motifs,
 501 Quilting Motifs
and in the next post I'll show you how that was quilted.

Until then, I hope spring has sprung where you live!

Happy Quilting!
