Florabunda (aka Jacob's Ladder in floral fabrics)
Inspired by a vintage quilt.
It's a top!
Bonnie Hunter (Quiltville) first showed the vintage quilt that inspired her in June 2011 and then shared how she made the nine inch blocks she nicknamed Florabunda.
I started making blocks around the same time - June 2011. But I soon ran out of floral fabrics and yellow tone-on-tones.
I decided to move forward on this old UFO since I've accumulated a few more (most of these ugly and cheap remnants) floral fabrics over the years.
I'm out of love with it now but that's no excuse not to finish it. There's always a need for twin sized quilts and the blocks were not meant to be wasted. (And I'm tired of all these boxes with unfinished quilts in them that take up space).
If you look at the vintage version and Bonnie Hunter's version of Jacob's Ladder you will see that they are just a little bit different than mine; however, both versions are made up of the same pieces - four patches and HSTs. Orientation matters!
