  1. Hourray for this cute National Flower Day quilt! Your micro meanderings and straight lines quilting are tiny! The new wall hanging looks great on your studio.
    Thank you for sharing another pretty bee quilt, and linking up ;)

  2. What a lovely way to celebrate all flowers. Every block is gorgeous.

  3. Pretty wall hanging for flower day, you are lucky to have such great wall space to hang your beautiful projects.

  4. Pretty runner of flowers, perfect for spring! Looks so nice on your wall, too!

  5. Hi,
    Awesome Table colorful.
    Have a great day!

  6. How nice to have a runner with blocks from your friends. And what a visual surprise to see it as a wallhanging - perfect!

  7. Oh you did a beautiful job quilting this piece. But what caught my eye was the fussy cut petals of your flowers. Those little dogs, cats, clowns and the rest are darling. And look at you with a place to hang your finish. Great job.

  8. What a beautiful runner/wall hanging! I rather love the busy-ness of the background of your block. I love where it hangs, too, in your studio. The blocks are all so different, yet really work well together. Were you each given a color? Or just went with it? Oh, and that backing fabric is quite something, but perfect on this piece.

  9. That's such a pretty flower block! I love that each flower was made by a different maker. It looks beautiful hanging in your studio!

  10. A very bright and pretty finish!

  11. Hello Nancy,
    Such a sweet collection of flowers! We have had plenty of spring flowers blooming already, and should have the first splash of red soon when the tulips open. I like your busy background - the blue reminds me of the forget-me-nots that we have growing by our path.
    Thank you for linking up with Free Motion Mavericks!
    Love, Muv
