New Spring Fabric

This is the fabric I bought for my "Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt. I wanted to be able to take quilting along with me to do some work if I was sitting in the Midwife's waiting room, or at the park with Talia or on an airplane etc. Since this quilt is completely hand-pieced I figured it would be a good place to start. The "jelly roll" of fabric is perfect for this quilt because it consists of 40 inch long strips that are 2 1/2 inches wide. I just cut squares from it and they fit well over my hexagon template. I have made two flowers so far (on the airplane!) and it's fun to hand quilt. Of course, this quilt could take years to finish.
