Fresh Flowers are hanging!

Last year at one of the retreats I was at I won a Jelly Roll called Fresh Flowers, it's a line of fabric from Deb Strain. When I was rummaging through some of my other jelly rolls I ran onto this one. The hunt was on for a pattern. Since just being to the beautiful country of Holland, I wanted to get this done for spring to remind of the beautiful flowers they have there. I came up with the pattern Happy Go-Lucky from Camille Roskelley's book, Simplify.Instead of the initial like she used, I chose to applique a flower on my block. Ramona, was kind enough to crochet me a flower button for the center. She is the quilter of this quilt, together we chose and all over flower and leaf pattern and the thread was a variegated red, yellow and orange.
She's already hanging up in the back entry way. Bring on summer!

This quilt looks just as colourful als the flowerfields that are blooming here right now. Do you have a name already for this 'Holland' quilt?
