Winter may have only just begun, but sometimes I like to be reminded of the flowers blooming in the spring and summer. That’s why keeping warm with this quilt is perfect!
Jenny Doan from the Missouri Star Quilt Company got this idea from her daughter in law, whose grandmother made a version of this quilt for her when she was a little girl.
Doan found a way to update this quilt to make it even easier to make: a little orange peel template to create perfectly even petals, and fusible interfacing to put them on!
If you’d like to get started making this yourself, here’s what you’ll need:
Putting It Together:
Making this block couldn’t be any easier if you tried. Just take 10 inch blocks of two different colors and cut them in half, then sew the two colors together!
Use the orange peel template (or make your own) to cut out 3 petals of each color. You can choose to add the fusible interfacing to the fabric before you cut out the petals or after.
Stick on the petals, having the opposite colors be on top of one another. Fuse them on, then you can sew the petals on for an additional touch if you’d like.
Then that’s it, your block is done! Add some batting, a border or two if you’d like, and a piece of backing fabric to finish up your quilt.
