I decided to trim my blocks to 25.5 inches instead of 24.5 since I had the extra fabric and it would space the applique’ a little further apart.
Next, I would need to cut my setting triangles apart because I appliqued' them all together to prevent stretching of the bias edges.
Because the blocks are now 25.5 inches square I added a half inch all the way around the setting triangles when I trimmed them so they would fit on to the blocks. I am sure all you experienced quilters that are good with math know this but it took me a while to figure it out.
"Here’s Tulip!" Not the best picture. I just don’t have space enough to get a straight shot of the quilt.
I am well pleased with the result so far. This is a pattern from Collector With A Needle and it’s really pretty simple applique’.
My big decision now is do I want three borders like the original or four and what color to make the border flowers?
