Fresh Picked Posies

Since Summer took it's own sweet time arriving, I just couldn't resist these bright and happy posies!  Designed by Piece of Cake, we are running Fresh Picked Posies as a block of the month through the Barn.  Becky's version called for random (no ruler) cutting and piecing of the background blocks.  Since I'm a controlled chaos, method to my madness kind of girl, I'm not very good at free motion cutting, so I decided to use a Buggy Barn Crazy block for my backgrounds.  We've included the pattern for these blocks in your first month, along with the fabrics for all of the backgrounds and your applique for month one.  I love this quilt!  It really is my happy quilt!  How can you not help but smile when you see it?  Have a sunny and happy week!
