I have paper pieced most of the blocks, but the lettuce, the star of the quilt, I decided to do with the curved piecing pattern. It was difficult and I ended up hand basting it and pressing before I sewed it, but it turned out well.
The lettuce is the star of the quilt because when I was born, first child, all the other women in the ward got flowers. My Dad brought Mum his first head of lettuce from that year’s garden. She still hasn’t forgiven him! I’ll post a picture of the quilt when it’s finished, but here’s the lettuce.
