I thought I would just make the 12 blocks and have a small charity quilt.
When I was reading quilt blogs, I saw an interesting border idea that I decided would go with these blocks. As I added the border of bright 2 ½” strips, I also added another pieced yellow border. With the borders, the quilt top measured 52 by 64”.
I figured with an additional 4 inch border the quilt would be a good size adult lap quilt at 60 by 72”. I went searching in my stash and found a fabric of small bright multi-colored squares and this is how the top looks now.
I still need to appliqué leaves. I plan to use 4 green fabrics leftover from my daughter-in-laws spring floral pinwheel quilt. I will cut out a bunch of leaves and then I can play with where they will look best.
