I love, love, love all the fabrics she sent--guess I'm a sucker for old sheets, too! Anyway, I thought that the vintage look of the fabric required a matching vintage quilt look...in a 12.5" block. Not always easy to do. I had seen a magazine article recently that taught how to hand-piece hexagonal flowers. After thinking it over for a couple of weeks, I decided to go for it. I hand-stitched the hexagons together and then I machine-stitched the flower to the orange fabric.
After that, the rest of the block came together pretty quickly. The center-right block is the one that had to remain uncut, and as luck would have it (because I would never plan this far ahead), it was about the same size as the appliqued block! Whew!
I'll be off to the post office today to send this to Jessica.
