Fresh Cut Flower Boxes

Yes, more Fresh Cut.
Because I love it.
Add in some Amy Butler wallflower and a few others... Heaven.

I was inspired by a quilt on Flickr. I thought this would be a great way to use lots of my favorite fabrics. 
I quilted a flower in the middle of each of the center squares in a coral thread. Then I did loops with leaves all over the rest in green. Of course it has a minkee back.
This one is going to live with me. I can't wait to snuggle up on the couch with it and my Kindle.
And yes....I do have even more Fresh Cut on the way. I'm addicted.

So pretty - and I love those flowers! You did a fabulous job on them. Freehand?

I'll have to give Minky a try. It looks so snuggly. Does it shed after the first wash?

And what's on your Kindle :)

What a beautiful quilt. You're so lucky to have such gorgeous fabrics. I can't wait to have some extra cash so I can buy some of the wonderful fabrics myself. Soon I think.

Once again, gorgeous!! I love my Kindle. Got it from my DD last year for Christmas. Kindle, quilt and a hot cup of tea. Yum yum.

P.S. Every where I look (so far), I cannot find Fresh Cotton fabric. Where do you order/get your collections from? Please?
