Coming Along with the Posey Tabletopper

Nine of the blocks finished now.  I have considered just adding a border of some kind, but I think I am going to go ahead and make the additional seven blocks and just have it borderless.  The applique doesn't take all that long to do and I think it will be really pretty when it's quilted.  I am pretty much "eyeballing" the pieces as I fuse them to the background. 
If you would like to make something from this pattern that came from an old quilt magazine (probably Quilt), here it is for you to right click and save as.  It  would be very easy to change the shape of the leaves.  I made the flower all one piece and added a circle for the center.  My blocks are 8 inches finished, but they could be any size.  I think a very large block would make a gorgeous all over quilt for a bed - batiks would be smashing.   (Click to enlarge)
