In this design I’ve used Multi Tulip Explosion/Sunflower Grenade and Multi-Stargazer Fireworks/Iris Paintball as my flower panels from the Daydreams III Flower Bomb range.
The quilt is designed in four distinct units. If you want a smaller quilt, you can work with just one unit. While this quilt is not terribly difficult to make, you need to measure as you go. Pieces are put together like a puzzle.
This design can be applied to any large scale print. My alternate colorway uses a big retro flower fabric in bright 1960’s colors.
