The Flora Quilt

Here is the latest addition to my Etsy shop, the Flora quilt. Not named after anyone in particular, but the name fits.

I got most of this fabric at the local thrift store with the great fabric remnants. It looked like the blue with the pink and white flowers was from a home improvement project gone sad, cut out for something but never finished. It was great to work with and fringed like a pro. Much of the cotton that is made now has to be coaxed into fringing, not this stuff, it thought it was denim.

The rest was from a garage sale, some leftover French themed fabric from my very first quilt and a great blue calico from my former co-worker. It was a joy to sew, no major hiccups and it sure looks nice in our guest room.
