My Flower Scrappy Quilt

Look close, you may have seen a quilt very similar to this one but it's  NOT the exact same.  I had to make it mine different.  (I like to add my own touch to all my quilts.) 

When I first seen this on the cover of American Patchwork & Quilting magazine, I thought it was so neat.  I dug and dug into my scraps to find just the right fabrics that would go together.

Then I re-drew the quilt on graft paper shrinking the blocks down to 4 inch QST and changing the center and corner blocks.

I then proceeded to make my flower appliques.  I put my two sides on and placed the flowers where I wanted them and machine appliqued them in place with monofilament thread.

I made all my blocks and carefully sewed all together matching all points and trying not to get 2 the same prints together.

I machine quilted in an all over pattern.  For the binding, I cut 10 inch strips from each of my fabrics that I used.  I hand sewn them on with the blanket stitch.  My total size is 55" X 55"

Anyone interested in this quilt, it will be posted on my site for sale.  Thanks for looking...

That is very cool! Lots of interesting patterns to explore while you're admiring it and probably fun to make too, since its not all the same. I love it!
