Freda's Flowers

It is always a huge accomplishment to get a new quilt pattern completed. I'm really glad to say my pattern is ready. It will be for sale in quilt shops and by PDF download in my Etsy Shop.

My version, above, is very scrappy and I pulled from my stash to make this quilt but it is very Jelly Roll friendly. It would work for most Jelly Rolls with adding some background prints and greens for leaves.I also made a smaller version using my Lecien basics and Flower Sugar II. I actually think it would work as a baby quilt, too.
Here is the smaller version and it is 39"x 39". The pattern works up really quickly. I'm sure there will be a few errors but I'll fix those as they are spotted (most designers have mistakes here and there so that makes me always feel ok about that).

It was really fun to design and make this quilt. I love it.
