Garden Party quilt

Share it Please
Many, many years ago, I came across this pattern on the old Moda web site. It's still available online here.

It's such a clever reworking of the traditional Dresden plate block. I printed the pattern out and stored it for just the right marriage of fabric, time, and recipient. The day has come.

Using the Strawberry Fields fabric line from Fig Tree Quilts and some fabric from my stash, I got caught up in making the petals.

But now I'm stuck. I had enough fabric to make 15 flowers, but to make a symmetrical quilt, I need 16. Sigh. I'll have to wait again until the motivation hits to figure out a workaround. Ideally the motivation will hit before Christmas.
