Pickets & Posies Pattern a la Sweet Florals made by Chris Ison

Pickets & Posies a la sweet florals made by Chris Ison, a member of our Silver Thimble Quilt Club. The newest pattern from Silver Thimble Quilt Company, "Pickets & Posies" combines easy paper piecing and strip piecing to make a picket fence for your "posies" to climb on. Posies are made with traditional yo-yos and yo-yo flowers. Colorful buttons and white rick rack are the perfect embellishment. Chris and other class members spent the day sewing. Pattern ($8.50) and kits (includes pattern, fabric, buttons & rick rack, $52.95) are available from Little Quilts. See the website for kit fabrics.
