Happy Flower Garden Quilt

Who loves flowers? Well, I love flowers, but I do NOT have a green thumb. Even though I should have a green thumb. I took Horticulture and Landscaping classes in High School. I know what I’m supposed to do, but I’d rather be inside sewing. I know it sounds bad, but it is true.

When I started designing my Happy Flower Garden Quilt, it was actually a totally different design. And then I though ‘Hey, that looks like the top of a flower’. So I took that shape and made it into some tulip looking blocks. Since I love flowers so much, I thought this would be the perfect quilt for myself! I’ve been wanting to make myself a quilt for awhile, I just hadn’t picked the right pattern yet.
I have been hoarding some Macramé Fabric by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cotton + Steel Fabrics. I thought this would be the perfect time to use some of this gorgeous fabric.

I love how it turned out and am happy I finally cut into this beautiful fabric. I decided to go with a wavy line quilting. I usually go with straight line quilting. First I drew a wavy line from the top to the bottom of my quilt with a water soluble fabric marker. Then I started quilting from the top to the bottom of the quilt. I adjusted my walking foot guide to 1 inch and went along my first quilting wave. It’s not perfect, but I love it! One of my favorite parts is the bright pink backing!

So if you like flowers too, then this quilt pattern is perfect for you too! It comes with directions for a baby/crib size and throw size quilt. This pattern is great for the adventurous beginner to intermediate. It has a lot of different pieces so keeping organized is key. I like to write my sizes on a little piece of paper and pin it to the stack of corresponding pieces.

When I tested out my Baby Size quilt I decided to go for a floral sashing! I love this June Bug fabric by Dear Stella Fabric! I can’t wait to finish this one!

This would be a great quilt to make for a new summer baby or a throw size for a graduate!

You can get your copy of the pattern in my Etsy Shop and in my Craftsy Pattern Shop.

Happy Quilting!
