Nine done - so more than half way! I'd forgotten how painful all the trimming was with these - definitely my least favorite part of these blocks. I've found my groove with them now though and I'm finding it SO much easier to get the seams to match - there has only been a small amount of unsewing ;o)
But the other seven flowers are now trimmed as well, so it's just a matter of sewing them all together :o) Now it's getting closer I'm trying to decide how to quilt it - no firm ideas yet, I think there will be a lot of sketching before I tackle the quilting part!
In the next week, I need to get my bee blocks done (and my next tutorial for the QAL) so I'll be having a wee break from these. Still, it's so nice to be knocking over a WIP at last!
Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced (button in sidebar), and I'm looking forward to seeing what everyone has been up to :o)
It's so beautiful. I want to copy it.
Fabulous! The end result will be awesome
Jess, your blocks are GORGEOUS! Even simple echo-quilting would make the flowers pop. Your quilt will be beautiful! Please post another picture when it's finished. Hugs!
Oh, and what beautiful fabrics!
These are looking so fantastic so far! Worth all the hassle of trimming up and pinning seams I'm sure!
Hope everyone's on the mend soon!
they look stunning!!
This quilt is looking good! I love that part of a process where it starts getting easier.
It is going to be gorgeous, thanks for sharing!
Oh so gorgeous - I've machine pieced clamshells recently and appreciate the curves issue, one day I will tackle some retro flowers (maybe!)
Your blocks are gorgeous!!!
It took me a long time to finish my retro flowers, too. I was stuck at 9 blocks for quite awhile. But it's such a lovely quilt to have finished. I just hung mine on my dining room wall yesterday!
They look great! That's on my to do list too but I know it's going to be a challenging one.
Beautiful!! I love the colors!
So beautiful!! Love the fabrics you're using :)
I love the fabrics you're using. Can't wait to see how it looks finished!

They look gorgeous and woo hoo to being on the home stretch!

So sorry you've all been ill, but your quilt is lovely!
Very lovely altogether! My favorite block is the brown and pink one in the bottom corner. :)
I hope you are all feeling better!
