A sprig of flowers for Leap Day

Happy Leap Day!

I recently got this embroidery pattern from a blog, but unfortunately I can't find the blog now so I can't tell you where I got it. My first thought was to resize it so it would fit the square but then I realized it would fit the quilt if I am willing to let it spill over to other blocks. Yes I am; in fact, I am happy to do it.

I added some applique to make these flowers really stand out. The petals are perle cotton. I need to add one more stem for the lavender on the left.

I put it pretty close to where the other ones are. I need to spread out  more so I can be done when I decide I am done, but this looks like a good concentration of motifs for round one.

Very cute. It's a no rules crazy quilt, spill away! It all looks like too much fun.

Love those embroidered flowers! Quite right in causing them to spill over into the other blocks.

I think it's brilliant to have the embroidery cross borders like that! Curious what the Buddha quote is, just beyond your photo;).

A sweet bouquet.

I love that you chose to have this spread over several blocks. This is going to be stunning!
