To start, I rummaged around in my scrap basket, and found these pink and orange scraps from a dress that I had made for my daughter last year, and thought they would be perfect for the flowers.
For the leaves, I used some green scraps from my first Project Linus quilt:
Here it is after fusing the pieces on:
And after the free-motion applique (which was MUCH harder than I thought it would be!):
And finally, after stippling. I was not brave enough to try the super-fancy quilting!
For the white background and the flowered backing, I used bits of the thrifted sheets that I'm using for my zig-zag quilt.
So, that’s the story. This little quiltie has scraps from my past and current projects, and I think it turned out pretty well for my first try!
