Floral Bouquet Quilt


I made this  Floral quilt with Wallflowers fabric strips from Windham fabrics.   I like the vintage feel of the Wallflowers fabric and the pattern reminds me of the old timey tulip quilts.   I pieced this quilt top over a year ago on my Singer Featherweight.   It does a great job with straight lines used in quilting.  I need to get that little machine back out.

I had enough extra fabric to make a matching pillow and a pair of burrito roll pillow cases.    If you haven’t heard of the burrito roll pillowcases see my post http://www.sewingwithrascal.com/2014/10/wash-bag-for-hospital-care-package.html 


I used a pattern from Jelly Roll Quilts by Pam and Nicky Lintott.

Cyndi Herrmann of Quilting Bee did the longarm quilting on it.  I like the flower pattern she used.

Most of the time this quilt stays on the back of the chair in my sewing room.  It is one of Geff’s favorite quilts.

Ah...this quilt is just delightful! Reminds me of the quilts my Grandmother and her friends used to make. I can see why it's a favorite!
