Meet the Primrose quilt!
My Forget-Me-Not fabric line has a print of flowers in jars, so I thought it would fun to carry the jars over into a quilt. Technically the fabric has tulips in jars...but since I've already made a Tulips quilt, I decided on a primrose block instead. This quilt has a similar layout to Pumpkins, with the different heights of blocks and the leaves in different directions that give it a little more movement.
The flower dot is a perfect jar colored blue that almost looks like a solid from a distance. These blocks are so cute on their own!
They aren't hard to make, but there are a lot of diagonal seams. Diagonal Seam Tape will save you a thousand hours (or so) without having to mark diagonal lines!
I sent this to Kaitlyn for quilting. I love this design she chose that looks like dainty flowers, but is still geometric and modern at the same time.
The backing is a wide back fabric I bought on sale here. I like buying neutral colored backings when they go on sale because they match anything, and in this case I didn't want to use my limited sample yardage of Forget-Me-Not.
The pattern includes material lists and all the instructions to make a table runner too!
Primrose is in my shop now as a PDF here, or a Paper pattern here.
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! -Allison
This is another favorite - love the blue jars and flowers 'potted' in them! Hoping to make this soon :)!
so very cute
Just purchased this pattern at Fat Quarter shop with a set of fat quarters and background fabric. Can’t wait to get started but am a new quilter and a bit anxious. Is there any chance there will be a video tutorial done anywhere I can reference. Planning to make it as a wedding gift for my eldest daughter on 8/6/22
Love the fabric and Primrose pattern. I can't wait until the fabric comes out!! Already bought the pattern.
