Back then I was new to quilting and didn't have a stash. But I had a gorgeous floral fabric printed with a variety of flowers in different sizes. I fussy cut daisies and zinnias, in hothouse colors, for the center squares and randomly cut the strips to compliment each flower. This gave the blocks a scrappy, but coordinated look. I like how the different sized strips and centers make the quilt bounce. I think it has a sixties vintage that is still totally fresh and modern. I sent it out to be quilted because I wanted my niece, Ana to be able to bounce on it too.
My sister's child was named for our grandmother. She grew roses and perennials in our backyard garden. I still remember the botanical names of the plants she grew.

Even though this was made in 2002 it still looks fresh and modern!
