Project Quilting season 6 - #3 = Trellis

PQ challenge 3 this time is Orphan block or UFO and make something unintended from them.  I don't think I did exactly that this round. The lattice blocks were part of a white elephant swap back in Dec. with my guild.  I decided to mash that with some fun petal scrappy blocks and ended up with

She is 41" x 48"
Orphan block strips and my appliqued petal blocks
Some straight line quilting some wavy. Scrappy binding.
I think some child will like this bright little quilt.

I received two chunks of finished blocks. They were sewn together but differently and I really wanted to make them work together. I stopped in and visited with some of the members of a small sewing group and asked for advice how to make this up.  I came away with an idea to use the blocks separately and make two quilts with them. So I let that stew in my mind and went about my other work until this challenge.   I found tons of orphan blocks that I could have used for this challenge but I wanted to get something done with these blocks since they are not exactly mine. :)

I found I have stacks of petals from another quilt I made using the Accuquilt applecore die.  I thought I could make this work.  ** Bonus: the petal shape is a BOM over at SewCanShe Classic Blocks so I had that in mind when trying to mesh these ideas together.

I thought it was pretty smart of me to include the classic bom on the back.  I had so many other ideas for this great challenge. I was taking pics of lots of orphans but I could not decide on any. Then while scooping snow on Wed I strained my back and ended up thinking I was not going to be able to do this challenge.  I kept thinking on it and decided to give this a go since I had a chunk of blocks already made. I hope this still qualifies.  If not I am happy for a finish.
