Fast Flowers Appliqué

Need a faux headboard for a little girl's twin bed? Make three blocks, arrange them in a horizontal row, and add borders to make a cute-as-can-be wall hanging. To complete the look, sew a couple more blocks into matching throw pillows. Fabrics are from the Juliana collection by Sue Zipkin for Clothworks.
