Spring is in the air…

Today I am sharing another PMQG charity quilt… and although this one is from our Charity Sew Day in September last year, it seems seasonal appropriate to share it now…

I call this the Flower Garden quilt, and it is made up of a piece of just about every floral fabric every donated to the Charity program…as well as a few from my scrap bin…

The floral squares are in three sizes, all of which work nicely together… 8 inches, 3 inches and 5 1/2 inches unfinished.

Each quilt block that was made was 15 1/2 inches unfinished… allowing each sewer to put together what ever combination of blocks they wanted too to get to the allotted size.

The left over blocks were sewn together to make part of the quilt backing….

As with nearly all the Guild charity quilts, one of our talents long armers weaved their magic to finish things up…

Jolene chose an all over vine pattern, which works beautifully with the floral theme of the quilt….and viola we have another wonderful finished quilt ready to go out into the world and do some good.

As always thanks to the wonderful Guild members who donated their time, fabric and skills….

  1. It’s stunning! A fabulous way to use those large scale floral prints which are too big for anything else but too lovely to cut up small. Again, you’d think the patterns and colours would fight, but they just don’t.

  2. Just the bit of cheer needed as I look at 16″ of snow with more blowing side-ways! If this can cheer me up, it should surely make someone else happy.
