Mum’s Garden Quilt

My Mum adores her garden.  So to bring the garden inside I made her a quilt full of flowers.

 

To make a quilt like this, go to your stash and choose all the florals you can lay your hands on.  The more the better.  You may wish to focus on a colour story .  This quilt has a focus on red and pink florals, with green and just a touch of yellow.  Making a similar style quilt with blue florals can also make a stunning quilt.

Or you can choose from floral charm packs, or a mixture of charm packs  and some fabrics cut from your own stash.

The squares are all set on point.  You can use charm squares or any size squares you like, to get the same effect.

If your floral prints are very large you may wish to make your squares even larger to show off the fabrics in the quilt.  I used a floral backing that matched one of the prints in the front and quilted it by just stitching in the ditch between all the squares.  I made the binding floral too.
