Daffodil Happy Garden Quilt

56 x 68

I saw a quilt on pinterest that I liked, but I didn't want to make a 82 x 98 inch quilt!  Lap quilt size was what I wanted.  So I started drawing on my graph paper to get the size down.  I ended up turning the pattern on its side and cutting it down to about half.  Here is a link to the original free pattern. You have to scroll down a ways to get to it.

Instead of following the pattern, I counted squares, cut them, and laid them out on my design wall.  I cut the white centers at 6.5 inches.  I sewed vertical strip sections, working around the white centers until I had sewn sets of columns.

I used the rest of the daffodil fabric on the back because it was one of those unwanted fabrics on my shelf.  I think this pattern turned that unwanted fabric into a wanted quilt!  Love it!
