Albums: Spring Flowers Quilt
Join Quilt With Us
Got it done in just under 20 years. It could have been done in under 6 months, except for those "Oh, Look! A Chicken!" moments that got me sidetracked. The fabrics are the "The Language of Flowers" line of fabrics by Susan Branch from Quilters Only by Spring. I started this by buying the fabric in 1999. I had seen the pattern and fabric in an episode of “Simply Quilts” with Alex Anderson. The only thing I did differently was to add the four appliqué blocks in the blank setting squares. I used a pattern I found in Patricia Cox’s book American Quilt Classics. That quilt was called Spring Bouquet and was a kit that come out about 1930. I photocopied the motif and blew it up to the size I needed, then made templates from the photocopy. I did the appliqué blocks around 2001-2004. I put off doing the piecing of the Lemoyne Star blocks until I could be sure I could get the points to match in the center. After trying many different methods, I elected to hand-piece. It has been in and out of my quilting hoop ever since. It is 100% cotton and ended up 87" square after washing and drying.
