Who doesn’t love flowers? And, making this quilt will provide students with a beautiful flower garden to bloom all year! Each student will choose their flower colors (solids, tonals or prints), and create their template free flowers using quick corners; and 1″ wide strips to make a 9″ finished block. Students will learn how to set blocks on point and how to add the connecting triangles to make the quilt center. An outer border is added to make the 54″ square quilt top. 

 

 

REQUIRED SUPPLIES

It’s a great idea to make a sample block before making the actual quilt! You will be making one 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2” flower block square as a sample block before you cut and sew the entire quilt. IF you need help measuring and cutting your fabric for the actual quilt, I can help you!


For one block to make in class, you will need to cut:

–   Four 4 3/4″ squares (flower petals) – your choice of color

–   Four 1 1/4″ squares (flower center) – your choice of color

–   Two 1” x 1 1/4″ strips, and one 1” x 2 ½” strip (flower center) – your choice of color

–   Twelve 1 1/2″” squares (outer corners of the flower) – white

–   Four 1” x 4” strips (center “split” between petals) – white
