About a month ago I wrote of
seeing this fabulous Nosegay Quilt
made by Deborah Engle.
It has been calling and calling to me.
The block is a traditional one from the 1800's
and I completely fell in love when I saw it
Modernized with Kaffe Fassett fabrics
Kaffe Fasset is the only fabrics I collect
and I have plenty of scraps in my stash to make this quilt.
I did some research and this block is traditionally constructed
by making your own templates.
There are a lot of "Y" seams, too.
Doesn't sound a bit fun, and I was hoping to find an easier way.
As I did further research
designed by Joanna Figueroa
of Fig Tree Quilts in 2007
I ordered the pattern from her web site right away :)
Joanna doesn't like templates and Y seams either
and drafted the above Nosegay block
mainly using squares and triangles.
More of the story on her blog
For the setting
I want to put the blocks on point
just like Deborah's.
I can hardly wait to get started!
