We’re planting a whole garden of pretty flowers this week! The Quilter’s Cottage Sew Along Flower Blocks are so cute and so fun to sew up!
Aren’t they so cute?! I had a blast sewing these together!
If you’re new to the sew along, we are sewing through the cute blocks in Lori Holt’s Quilter’s Cottage Quilt! This is Week 3 – the flower blocks – and there is plenty of time to still dive in! You can find a link to Fat Quarter Shop at the end of the post with all the info so you can sew along.
I am using Singing in the Rain for my Quilter’s Cottage Quilt and since I’m using my aqua raindrop print for the background, I wanted my flowers to have a good contrast. So I chose the dark pinks and a white print for my flowers!
These six little flowers stand in a row under the house. I’m loving seeing these blocks come together!
Since my background is a directional print, I had to be a little more careful in how to sew the flowers and leaves together. It took a little more time but it was easy to do! I just made sure the blocks would flip to the right direction before stitching.
Quilter’s Cottage Sew Along Flower Blocks
This week we’re making six of these flower blocks! I did two in my red daisy fields print, two in the dark pink floral and two in the white floral. I used the teal print for both the leaves and stems.
