After the sadness of the past week, I'll post something a little more cheerful. This quilt was made a few years ago like one I had seen on HGTV's Simply Quilts, named Posy Pots. The quilt combines Irish Chain blocks and applique blocks, and is great for beginners or as a quick quilt for quilting veterans. The instructions were provided by guest, Nancy Martin. They might still be available on the archives of Simply Quilts, I'm not sure. Her quilt was made smaller to be used as a picnic quilt; I made mine larger, about twin sized. The applique blocks were made by the freezer paper method; too special to be used for a picnic.
