The Painting Flowers Quilt

It’s always nice to sew a pretty floral quilt for summer, and the Painting Flowers fabrics makes such a fresh summer quilt.

The Painting Flowers collection is a limited edition, but the quilt pattern can work with any fabric.
The simple quilt blocs makes a sort of organiced chaos patchwork and works well if you use larger bolder pattens on the larger pieces, and then smaller patterns on the smaller pieces.

The quilt measures 80,5 x 51 inch (201,25 x 127,5 cm)

The quilt block consists of 4 different sized rectangle shapes. The measurements are in inches and a 1/4 inch seem allowance is already added. The rectangels in the block will be pieced together in many different ways.

Here are the pieces you need to make the whole quilt top. The letters referes to the measurements abow, Pieces called A are 5 x 3,5 inch and so on. The number shows how many you need. Remember that seem allowance is already added to the measurements.

The rectangles are then pieced together in different ways to make two larger blocs. The letters shows you where the different sized pieces go.

You need six of block 1, three of block 2, and then tree blocs that are the equivalent of the top half of block 2.
As you can see block 2 is a mirror image of block 1.

We suggest using the “Summer Floral Blue on White” for backing, and “Nelly green” for the edge. The quilting is done by a professional quilting servise.
