I saw this pattern in a quilting magazine (I'm thinking Quilters World), made up in country blues and paisley and flowers.  I liked the pattern, but didn't have all of those wonderful fabrics to work with.  I used a retro 70's hippy flower power kind of fabric to fussy cut the large and small flowers, then a variety of red/black prints that I had purchased in a bundle at Hancock's.  When my older son saw the flowers on the design wall with the black sashing, he was determined that the finished product would be his.  He thought the reds/blacks had an oriental feel, so that was his calling. :)  Another son who sleeps in Mom's hug all night long. :)

Very nice.  I like the fussy cut flowers.  How many son's do you have? I have yet to get a quilt on our own bed, they go to relatives or charities.

I have two sons.  I always tease them that I had to try to figure out what caused the first one, and with the second, I found out my suspicions were correct. LOL  Had the second been the first, he would have been an only child.
