Recently my leader / ender project was analogous Crossroads blocks. After I had finished piecing 12 – 12” finish blocks, I laid them out and decided they needed something else – maybe a large appliquéd flower.
I was looking through a stack of quilt magazines I plan to share and found a lovely day lily pattern in the Oct./Nov. 2007 issue #82 of Quilt by Janet Rice-Bredin. I am sorry she no longer seems to keep up her blog or website.
I enlarged the day lily and raw edge machine appliquéd one flower. I used hand embroidery for the stamen.
I also added a simple border and the small top will wait in line ready to be quilted.
It is a lovely springlike day here. I'm ready. Enjoy!
