I meant to post this last month but whew…it flew by. We had company from out of town, baseball, birthdays (Jane my youngest turned 6!), and now I feel like a whole years worth of activities are crammed into the last two weeks of school. Two more weeks and then I can sleep in an extra hour each morning and our food bill doubles with the kids home all day!
This quilt is my Planted pattern, made with Forget-Me-Not fabrics.
I made this quilt with 10″ precut squares, but you can also make it with 12 fat quarters. You’ll use every smidge of fabric when using 10″ squares, and it’s a bit easier to cut out with fat quarters.
My post for Forget-Me-Not fabric is here if you missed it, it comes to stores in October.
I procrastinated making this one a little too long and ran out of time to send it to a quilter, so I quilted this one myself on my machine. My shoulders hated me for a few days afterwards!
The backing is a plaid from the same fabric line. I had a lot of questions about which white fabric I used in all of my quilts made with this fabric line, and it’s this same Moda Bella Solids Off White 9900-200 I’ve used in all of my quilts for years. I just saw it’s on sale this month here (now it’s out of stock but check back!).
Planted can be found here as a PDF, or here as a Paper pattern.
I’m off to a choir concert tonight and hopefully spending some time clearing off my cutting table so I can start a new quilt. When life is extra crazy why not start another quilt right?!
Another super cute pattern. Lovely fabric – and I love the name. Reminds me how at the end of the school year, my teachers often got a bouquet of Forget-me-nots from my mom’s garden in my elementary years. Those were the days, when simple went a long way.
What a fun quilt!
Love that Backing…it just sets it over the top.
The fabrics give this quilt that extra ooomph! Very pretty
i can;t wait for this fabric line to come out! All the prints are nice but gotta love that plaid! Also what a touch of suprise the gold printed fabric adds. Good for you Allison, you have every right to feel quite pleased with yourself and your talent!
