I adore floral patterns on my quilts, especially during the spring and summer months. When I saw Sew Very Easy had posted a tutorial on an easy floral quilt, I knew I had to make it.
I was so surprised at how simple this was to sew. Not only was it easy to make, but purple is one of my favorite colors and pansies are one of my favorite flowers, so it was perfect!
For each 2 fat quarters, you will get 3 quilt blocks. She used a bundle of 12 fat quarters for this pansy quilt, but obviously you can add or take away some depending on what size you’d like.
Take a light fabric and a dark fabric from the fat quarters and put them right sides together. Press and starch them together, and cut off the salvage ends.
Cut a 7″ strip, and cut three 7″ squares from this. Draw a diagonal line down each square. With the rest of the fabric, cut two rows at 3.5″. Sew each row together with a 1/4″ seam, then unfold.
Match those two rows together with the opposite fabrics facing each other, then cut 6 of them at 3.5″. You’ll sew each of theses squares together with a 1/4″ seam.
Then comes arranging the blocks, sewing them together, and quilting them with a border, batting, and backing. Watch how Laura Coia with Sew Very Easy finishes off this lovely quilt in her tutorial below.
