sewing: old-fashioned-nosegay quilt

Doesn’t this look like one heck of a tough pattern?

Those two squares were my first attempts, and the next three helped me figure out how to make it lay flat and have all those points actually come to a point. I’m still not sure what to do with the big lump of fabric the points’ ends make on the underside, but there’s time to come up with an answer.

I think I’ll have better luck actually completing 50 squares for this quilt, as each one is different. I get tired of doing the same thing again and again, and this is a scrap quilt so each bouquet gets to be unique. Mom, I’m using that beige fabric you gave me as the background–I knew what I was going to do with it from the get-go.

I think I like cutting out the fabric much better than sewing, but fingers crossed this will be done by the end of winter. I see it as a good project to do while we’re playing indoors. I think each square takes a half hour or more, so it’s definitely a looooong project.
