Some of the other quilters in the vicinty were alternately aghast and in awe as I took the rotary cutter to them and proceeded to sew them together WITHOUT PINNING. I figured I didn't have much to lose, since they weren't doing me any good without being put together, so I cut and sewed with abandon. I admit to a few puckers and lumps, but not too bad.
Here they are on various green fabrics. I haven't decided how to proceed from here, except that I want this to end up as a lap quilt for a good friend who loves flowers. Any ideas on how to get the roses onto the green background?
