Continuing my catch up mode, today I want to share a quilt that I made for last Quiltmarket…yes I am that behind in my blogging!
Maywood Studio’s approached me to make a quilt top for them for their new range of fabric, Catalina. They had a pattern that they wanted to use, but did need someone who paper pieced.
Yep I made that….using Sam Hunter’s fabulous “Bloomin” pattern.
This top was the first time I had worked with a fabric company to make a project just using one line. I was initially worried that I would not be able to get enough variety in the flowers to make them feel scrappy but as I started cutting I soon realised that it would not be an issue.
The Catalina line has some great border prints and large colourful florals and I found cutting them up into smaller strips, I had a lot of variety. I was thrilled with how it all turned out. The quilt was finished off with some amazing quilting by Nancy Stovall of Just Quilting.
Oh and did you notice how tidy my work is. I was so crazy obsessed with making sure this top had NONE of my usual stray cottons and messy edges. In the end I was more impressed with my ability to be neat than anything else with this project!

That is so cool! Love it! I feel challenged to attempt something similar on my own.. log cabin style!
The flowers really are just wonky log cabins… so this is a great idea. Let me know how it all turns out.
I think I will make a table runner for a Christmas present!
This is amazingly beautiful!! You deserve all the kudos coming your way!!
Amazing! Outside your normal design choices too, I would never have guessed it was yours, but I absolutely love it! What a great advertisement for a fabric range, and what fun for you to work with a fabric company.
I hear you on being neat. Somehow I always find threads on my quilts when I’m reviewing the pictures, no matter how thoroughly I check! Lovely little garden!
I cut a thread from the quilt that has been on my bed for years, and before that on the guest room bed. It happens.
I love the flowers – reminiscent of the Charles Rennie Mackintosh roses. I have some scraps of varied reds – I might have a go at doing this.
Wow! this is gorgeous. You are so clever. I’m off to find the pattern!
Wow, this is awesome, love these flowers!
This quilt of roses is gorgeous – thanks for showing the close ups of the rose.

Sweet quilt and perfect on the back ~ so impressed!
Ohhh I saw this pattern the other day, its striking and full of variation options. You truly have done a great job and look at the back wooohooooo 🙂
The quilt is gorgeous! I LOVE it! What a great job!
Oooh! I do like this pattern! I am going to have to put it on Pinterest for future reference!
Love the quilt and the post, Cath! You did a beautiful job and we couldn’t be happier. Thank you!
I just finished this into a table runner, but now I’m stuck as to how to quilt it. Did Nancy do an all-over design, or did she do something different within the flowers?
