Sweet Life in Tiger Lily




Time to make another quilt from Simply Retro!  I love this quilt block, but the quilt in the book had each individual block at 16".  Ending up with a very large quilt.  I wanted to use my fat eighth bundle of Tiger Lily fabric, but didn't want a queen size quilt, so I downsized the blocks by half. 

This block is now more like 8".  I'll give you my measurements when I post about the finished quilt.

Also, FabricSpark has some great fabrics on clearance, and you can take off an additional 20% with the code big deal!

  1. Look forward to your final post. Re-sizing this has been on my mind as I wanted to be able to resize the quilt and maintain the beauty.

  13. I cant describe how beautiful they are looking. I am feeling like my eyes and vision have been stopped at them. I don't want to see anything while watching them. Loving this post
