Bring a burst of color into your life with this flower blossom quilt. This is a fun, fast quilt as you go project you can easily start and finish on the weekend. The quilt's small size lends it to many decorative uses. It could be a centerpiece on a table, hung on a wall, or adorn a chair.
The flower blossom quilt is a wholecloth quilt with 4 large ovals sewn to the solid pink background. The inner pieces of the ovals are cut out carefully and repositioned in the center of the shape. Each oval and center of the oval has a blue flannel shape behind it to give dimension.
The appliques are sewn with the fabric edges raw, exposed. They are designed to fray to the stitches, giving a textured, unaffected look to the quilt. The appliques and the quilting are done at the same time. The binding is double fold.
Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible.
I love designing and making quilts, especially folk and story quilts. All my patterns are easy to follow with step by step directions and photos. Every pattern begins with a quilt created and sewn on my table top machine.
I have a blog where I share the design process behind the patterns, MarylandQuilter.com. Come by and visit!
