I won’t lie, I unpicked a lot of stitches today but the flowers are all pieced together!
The larger squares are actually 4 & 3/4″, not the 5″ I thought they’d be, I inserted them *after* I had the flowers connected to the diamonds, it just seemed to work better. I now have to figure out how I’m going piece the edges. I’m thinking of sewing squares onto the end of each flower, trimming the edges flush with the diamonds and filling in the corners. I suppose I could also make it hexagonal or stepped. Round would be awesome as well.
This is how the quilt would look if placed horizontally.
If you have any questions, fire away!
