Well, its official, I am cheating. But I'll never tell!! Here are some of my blocks finished with some PHOTOS.
I only had about 2 yards of pure white fabric, which is what I chose to use for the background of these oriental/metallic-type fabrics. So I have to get some more! Kellie of Don't look now says her next tutorial will be about joining rows which I'm purely confused about. LOL. I went ahead and just cut out 12" blocks for the background fabrics. What I would like to know, if anyone has the answer, is how many full 12" blocks we're making. Why? Because I'd like to go ahead and get enough fuse stuff for the petals and go ahead and cut them and stuff. But!! I guess that is what a quilt-along is all about. Doing things ONE-STEP-AT-A-TIME. Patience Katie Patience.
