Flower Party Quilt Pattern

Flower Party Quilt

It’s Flower Party time!! Who doesn’t love flowers! What’s even better is flowers that stay pretty year round. If you didn’t know, I love flower quilt blocks.

I have been really into scrappy quilts lately. So I wanted to make a flower quilt that block that would look great scrappy. And I think this Flower Party Quilt is perfect for all those scraps you have in your stash!

I was scrolling through one of my favorite online fabric stores and saw these gorgeous Road Trip fabrics designed by Alison Glass. And I thought these would be perfect for my Flower Party Quilt. I wasn’t sure what to use as a background fabric and one of my lovely followers suggested a gold/yellow color to match. So I took out my trusty Kona Color Card and found Wasabi was a perfect match!

I really wanted the Wasabi to be the center of the flowers as well as the background. So I used the Fabric A amount in the ‘Using 4 main colors’ and I added this to the background fabric amount. You need very little Fabric A so I still used 6 – 2/3 yard cuts for the throw size.

I love how well the bright Wasabi Kona Cotton looked with these Road Trip fabrics.

Quilting
I went with a 1 inch apart line from the top to the bottom of the quilt. I love the texture this gives a quilt and it’s super quick and easy.

I’m excited to see what fabrics you pick for your Flower Party Quilt!!
Happy Quilting!

Flower Party Quilt

We started our week out with a fun family trip to Great Wolf Lodge. It’s a hotel with a indoor waterpark. It has a couple restaurants and an video game arcade. We all had such a fun little mini vacation.

This week I focused on finishing up my Flower Party Quilt!!

I decided to quilt this one in lines from the top to the bottom of the quilt. First I went through and marked my lines (using the seams as my guide), every 2 inches. Then I went through with my walking foot and stitched 1/2 inch from each guide line/seam.

I picked a floral print from the Road Trip fabric line designed by Alison Glass, for the binding. I love how the floral binding looks on this quilt!

This new quilt pattern is now in my shop!!

I also started working on my nephews quilt! I got all the pieces cut out and ready to sew.

Goals for This Week!

I plan on finishing my nephews quilt this week! Baby quilts are so fun because they go together so quickly. I am using a new design! The pattern probably won’t be released until at least late March. I will have to wait to share the results of this quilt after the baby shower on Feb. 1st! I’m so excited to have a new nephew soon!

I hope you are making lots of progress on your list!!

This week I’ve been focusing on finishing my Flower Party Quilt! Saturday I was able to finish sewing the borders on.

Then Sunday rolled around and my Crohn’s disease started acting up again. I was diagnosed in 2008 with Crohn’s disease. It’s an auto immune disease that causes inflammation, ulcers and scar tissue in your intestines. I’ve have a couple sections of intestines with a lot of scar tissue, so sometimes these areas close off and become blocked. That’s what happened Sunday. Thankfully the blockage didn’t last a long time, but recovering from a blockage takes awhile. It’s like a bruise so it’s very painful days after the blockage happens and it zaps all my energy because I can’t eat any food during the blockage and have to only drink liquids for a few days after.

Thankfully on Thursday I had enough energy to wake up early and baste my Flower Party Quilt!

Goals for This Week!

I plan on quilting and binding the Flower party quilt! Then I can take photographs for the cover photo of the quilt pattern and order some paper patterns! The release date of this pattern is set for January 28, 2020. I’m hoping I can still make this release date with being delayed in finishing my quilt.

I hope you are making lots of progress on your list!!

This week I focused on working on my Flower Party Quilt! This is a 16 inch block quilt. The pattern will be released on January 28th. So I need to have the whole quilt completed and photographed by January 20th, so I can order the paper patterns.

I finished all the blocks and I added the sashing!

I was hoping to get more done this week, there just isn’t enough time in the day!

GOALS FOR THIS WEEK

This week my goal is to add the border, baste, quilt and bind my Flower Party Quilt!

I also need to start working on my nephews baby quilt! The baby shower is only 3 weeks away! I better get busy!!

Happy Quilting,
Andrea

Last week I was so happy to finish my baby size Left The Nest Quilt for the end of 2019! I decided to bind it in a bright pink (Valentine by Kona Cotton).

I worked more on my NEW Quilt Pattern, the Flower Party Quilt. I completed 1 block and am now sewing all the components for all the blocks at once. I am really excited to finish this top! The quilt pattern will be available in my shop January 28, 2020!

I can’t believe 2019 is already over! Last year went by so fast! I finished 10 quilts last year (6 Throw size and 4 baby size). I hosted 2 Quilt Alongs (The Frame It Quilt Along and the Happy Block Swap Quilt Along) and 1 Finish Those UFQs Challenge. I released 5 NEW Quilt Patterns: Frame It Quilt, Rainier Echoes Quilt, Left The Nest Quilt, Happy Block Swap Quilt and the Lovey Star Garden Quilt. 

Here are all my finished quilts:
