The idea is relatively simple, although I am asking you to dip into your own personal stashes a bit to help me out. One of the things I've wanted to do for a long time is to redecorate our bedroom in deep purples and grassy greens and I thought a "garden quilt" would be a great complement to that scheme. Unfortunately I don't have enough different floral prints to make an interesting quilt so I'm hoping you will share some of yours. I'm going to be sending everyone about half a yard of "Thunder" Shot Cotton and ask that you each make a 16.5 in by 16.5 in block that contains 1-3 different flowers. The flowers can be any size but I ask that like the inspiration quilt above you cut close around the flowers to eliminate as much of the background pattern as possible. You can use whatever color or type of flower that you like as long as it coordinate with the purple. I also ask that you not center the flowers in the middle of the block as the idea is to create the impression of a random field of flowers.
Hope that makes sense! I'll include a diagram with your fabric which I plan on sending out today!
