A Flimsy. Not a finished quilt.
72 x 90
I used a free Anna Maria Horner pattern that she calls Spinning Stars.
I've been calling it Petunias because...
...for some reason it reminds me of some Petunias I had on the deck last year.
Most of the fabrics I used are left overs and scraps from...
...a Pickle Dish quilt I finished earlier in the year.
I like how when the blocks are joined a secondary pattern of a star forms.
I was going to machine quilt this but I think it will be difficult on my dinky little plain Jane DSM so I will probably hand quilt in the fall when it is cooler since I don't have air conditioning. I want to emphasize those secondary stars and the octagons for sure.
I was going to give this as a Christmas gift to one of my granddaughters but maybe next year.
I still have some fabrics left over after both of these quilts. . Maybe I'll make a simple 16 patch with them.
