10 Red Charm Squares 2 Pink Charm Squares 2 Ivory Charm Squares For Corner blocks you will need 13 Ivory charm squares. All remaining charm squares will be used in background. Cutting:
From your Wheat Flour Jelly Roll cut 90 2 1/2"x5" rectangles. Cut the 13 Ivory Charm Squares into halves. Then cut in half again creating 50 - 2 1/2"x2 1/2" squares. Sewing:
Stitch Whet 2 1/2"x5" rectangles to one side of forty of the remaining charm squares. Stitch the 2 1/2" Ivory squares to one end of each of the remaining 2 1/2"x5" Wheat rectangles. Using the image below lay out and sew the quilt top together. Square up the edges of the top. I used my ruled and cut 1/4" out from the corner points. Now you'll have a square top. Using your Wheat Flour Jelly Roll strips add a 2 1/2" border all the way around the quilt. Cut out from your Red charm squares 10 poinsettia petals. Also from your pink charm squares cut 2 Large circles for flower centers. From 2 Ivory charm squares cut two smaller circles for your flower centers. Lay the poinsettias on the quilt and applique. We chose to applique by machine using a blanket stitch. Quilt, Bind and enjoy!
