A late start

I've been planning to participate in the Retro Flowers quiltalong but i was paralyzed by trying to narrow down my fabric choices. in the end i went with a muted palette and kona medium gray as the background. i'm also making only 9 flowers for a baby-sized quilt. Retro Flowers
i used my big shot to cut the drunkard's path blocks. it was very fast and easy and i was able to finish all of the cutting in one evening. sewing the curves wasn't too tricky. in the end i settled upon using 3 pins, one in the middle and one at each end and stitched slowly with my quarter inch foot. Retro Flowers
now i just have to stitch the blocks together. this one uses hello pilgrim pearl bracelet. i'm hoping to actually finish this one relatively soon so i should be back shortly with more progress.


  1. oh, your curves are lovely! this is such a sweet design. good luck!

  2. I love it!!

    I am machine quilting my "real first quilt".  I much prefer machine quilting over hand quilting.  I hope to have the quilting finished this weekend, and then I can do the binding!

  3. oh i love these blocks.  i have wanted to try them out for a while but haven't committed yet.  i love you color pallet.  

  4. i love it!
    and what a cool pattern!

  5. This is going to be lovely! That's awesome how fast you were able to cut and sew the curves!

  6. Your blocks look so precise! I really love the muted palette you chose.
