"Fresh Flowers" Quilt


It's finished! And it's rather pretty I think.





In the early morning light after completion this morning.
You can see the simple quilting lines accentuating the diamond shapes.


 This is the first quilt I have made using a charm pack (5"x5"squares) however I did end up leaving some fabrics out and adding a few extra squares of my favourites, all from Deb Strain's Fresh Flowers fabric range by Moda. Completed size, unwashed is 43" square (110cm).

*** You will find an easy to follow tutorial for making this quilt with slightly different border construction and a little smaller in dimensions over here at Wedding Dress Blue. Deanna has done a wonderful job of detailing how to construct an almost visually identical quilt.

What beautiful colors. They stand out lovely against the white background. Nice photos too. You should be really happy with that quilt.

Deanne said...

Oh it is just beautiful and you work so fast!

Thank you Michelle, I am happy with how it turned out. I didn't have quite enough of the green border fabric yet was determined to create a nice finish with what I had. I'm really pleased with the extra "points" and effect they give.

Thank you Deanne. A small quilt can be very fast. I had to wait for extra fabric to arrive from the US which gave me time to complete my "Nature Play" quilt. I take a while as I sew in between other commitments and only as I want to, without the "ought to" of some projects.

That is a great charm square pack pattern. Striking!

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Thank you Corrie. I just fiddled with it until I was pleased with how it looked.

Beautiful, Mummy! I think it's my favourite out of all the quilts that you've made.

Pieces of Sunshine said...

That's interesting Elise. Is it the colours/fabric or the design you like most?It was fun to make.

Wow!! That quilt is AMAZING!!!!!!!!!! I think I'll have to make one :P Was it hard to make??

Pieces of Sunshine said...

Thank you Lori, it makes me happy too.

Alice, I'm sure you would be able to make one. The only tricky bit was working out how to do the corners of the border.
