New York Blooms

My blooms are now ready to be quilted!

I had toyed with putting an extra border around  15 Minutes Play style and actually started to piece  fabric scraps together but then decided I really wanted the blooms to be the focal point and the lovely subway fabric as a simple border, so here it is and I am more than happy with how it looks. Thank you Helen for sending me the extra yard of the fabric, without it I wouldn't have been able to do this.

Now I can finish the remaining blocks for my first piece after Victoria kindly let me join the group - when I look at the nine blocks on the wall I  constantly am reminded for some reason of a fruit salad, therefore when this goes into my exhibition in February it's going to be either Tropical Fruit Salad or Tutti Frutti - rather like the last name best!


Back to the sewing machine - hope everyone has a great weekend!

LOVE what you did with these fabrics! It is simply delightful. And what a great 15 minute player you've become. Want to see your Fruit Salad, too...

Thanks so much Helen, hopefully have something more to show on the other piece in a week or so! I am enjoying this process so much.

really nice-i think you made the right choice opting for the small map border! Looks clean and the focus REMAINS on the lovely blooms!
