I’m starting up a new sew along and it’s going to be so fun! I am sewing along with the Quilter’s Cottage quilt block and this week is the Quilter’s Cottage Flowering Tree Blocks!
Quilter’s Cottage is a new book from Lori Holt with the cutest quilt and supporting projects. We are sewing through the quilt with Fat Quarter Shop and a few other talented quilters. It’s going to be so fun – I’d love for you to join us!
I’m making my quilt with Singing in the Rain and a few Riley Blake Basics. I can’t wait to see it all come together. I decided to make my trees cherry trees. One of my favorite parts of Spring here in the South is the trees that bloom in the spring, especially the Dogwoods and the Cherry Trees! So I had to make little pink cherry trees.
Quilter’s Cottage Flowering Tree Quilt Blocks
Along the bottom of the trees are little shrubs that carry over in front of the house. Mine are little flowering shrubs so I am using pinks, reds, and yellows. My fabrics are all Singing in the Rain except for the trunks – they are a gingham from one of Lori’s lines.
You can get all the info on the sew along at the Fat Quarter Shop blog. There are also a few other talented quilters sewing along – you can see all their blocks at Fat Quarter Shop too.
Here’s the schedule for the quilt along! You can see that it is a great breakdown, with fun blocks to sew up every week.

Hi Bev, are you going to go over each block on Facebook as you did for singing in the rain?
Hi Virginia! I won’t be doing that for this quilt since it’s not my pattern. :) Thank you for asking though!

Hi Bev, Do you consider this a beginner friendly quilt? It’s beautiful and i would love to try this but would need to have some instruction along the way.

I love your pink tree’s. I can’t wait to get started on this quilt. I have no idea what fabric yet to use, but I did order Vintage Happy 2, so will probably stick pretty much to that bundle.

Thank you for your red roof! I live Texas out in the country with silver metal roof
I think I am going to try for a Christmas looking house and yard for the sew alone or do two at one time…..ugh, is that insane!?!?

I am a beginner quilter which means I’ve made maybe 3 quilts thus far. I just started this quilt today. Trying to play catch up. I got one tree complete and in 2 hours. Made a boo boo cutting the fabric (yikes) but corrected it and came out the exact size in the book. Second times a charm because I must have done it right. Exciting. I purchased the kit. I’m not good at picking out fabric to match. Love the pink trees. Can’t wait to see your quilt complete it’s going to look beautiful.
