Nosegay Quilt Made with Kaffes

 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
I found 
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!

the only version I ever saw was the old Y seam one, nice that you have it figured out to make it easier for you! looks pretty with new bright fabrics and sashing
