I made this super-easy bouquet out of fat quarters for my booth at Quilt Market and it was a huge hit! If you're looking for a quick project with a lot of impact here's how to do it:

Supplies:

- fat quarters (I used all 16 prints from the "sundborn garden" by Hemma Design fabric collection for Red Rooster Fabrics)
- floral wire ( I used a raffia covered wire, but you can use any style you wish) cut into approximately 20'' lengths
- wire cutter
- vase
