When I submitted the first draft of my Backyard Blooms fabric, there was a little four leaf clover print in it, and I had this “clover” quilt planned out in my head to match.
The clover print was nixed, but this quilt was still begging to be made!
The throw size (the cover quilt) takes just one layer cake (yay!!!!!) plus a background fabric, or fat eighths.
This would be a fabulous quilt for large scraps, or those large pieces of fabric that aren’t quite scraps, but aren’t quite fat quarters (basically my whole stash at the moment!).
Ideally the fabrics should be non-directional (unlike the chicken fabric in my quilt), but I’ve never cared if the fabrics were turned here and there, so I went for it. Broken record here…this is another quilt that Diagonal Seam Tape will save you a thousand hours (give or take a little) marking diagonal lines. ;)
I’m making this quilt for Jane’s twin size bed in pinks/blues/lavenders….it’s going to be so adorable on her bed! Also I haven’t made her a quilt yet since I was pregnant with her…whoops.
Kaitlyn quilted this in an all over floral design. I wanted to bring out the roundness of the blocks a little more with the quilting.
Backyard Blooms will be available in July…I’ll post when it’s out in shops!
