The art quilt bee that Sue belongs to issues a challenge every other month to make a 12" square quilt that interprets a theme. The theme for May was "flowers". Here's her story of how she created the finished piece.
I started with an approximately fat quarter yard piece of fabric that was already printed with the birds on a branch screen. I intended to use it for another challenge, but didn't get to it before the deadline, so decided to revise the plan to fit the flowers theme.
