Cheater Quilt

This is my entry to this weeks Spoonflower competition. ‘Spring floral cheater quilt block’ I was only allowed to use nine colours, of which i chose three, and white. ( i just don’t like pink) 

I hadn’t heard of cheater quilts before now. but, in essence, someone would buy a yard or three of this fabric, some padding and a backing fabric, and stitch along the lines to make a quilt instead of cutting out the hexagons.
It will be available here:

The competition doesn’t open for voting until Tuesday, but i’ll be sure to remind y’all. ;)
