A Few Quilted Flowers

This quilt top waited quite a while to make it's way back under the machine to be finished. I knew I wanted to do some sort of motif in each block and these flowers ended up being just the right thing.

Rather than use the same thread color for the entire quilt, each block is quilted in coordinating, or sometimes contrasting thread.

The blocks in this quilt top were made by the quilters and stitchers of the do. Good Stitches Believe Circle. They sent their blocks to me...ahem...last December. It's all good now though.

The back is three long panels of purple. Pay no attention to those feet. They usually get cropped out. Must have forgotten to do that on this picture.

 The flowers show up nicely on the back too, especially on the darker purple.

Just added a label this morning.

This quilt has already been washed and dried to give it that soft crinkly look and feel. It will be sent off to My Very Own Blanket next week.


  1. Fun quilt and wonderful quilting. Did you free-hand the design???

    1. Thank you!! Yes, the design is free hand. I originally wanted to do a flower with long skinny petals but have learned that my ability to do longer lines with a steady hand needs lots more practice. The double row of shorter petals was a good compromise.

  2. Beautiful Quilt!! Love all the quilting.


Thank you. I really appreciate you taking the time to leave a comment.
