Need flowers now

     When Debbie of Stitchin Therapy posted a floral log cabin block, I was smitten and had to try it. Even though there were many other things I had to do, I followed the squirrel and made four blocks to see how they would look. 
     They use 2" squares and scrappy neutrals. I really needed these little bouquets of flowers. I think I will keep the squares 2", but that means I need to cut a ton. I have lots of 2 1/2" florals on my colorwash trays, but I will use the Accuquilt die to cut floral scraps. I have to cut oodles of 2" neutral strips also. I think it would be a good idea to do the cutting and then assemble a whole lot at once. 
     I have no idea how these will be arranged. I will make a garden of them first, and then figure it out. Just love looking at all those little floral patches. I did have purple snow irises open today and I almost fell over. The Hellebores have big buds, but no open flowers yet. 
     Thanks, Debbie!
