Primrose Quilt Pattern

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!

Tangled Quilt

Tangled Quilt

You guys know I love designing and sewing with pre-cuts!  Jelly Rolls are my fave, but Layer Cakes are my close second and you can use either with this pattern (or yardage!).  

Tangled is one of my newest quilts/patterns I made with Forget-Me-Not.  I’ve had this quilt messily sketched into my notebook for years, but for some reason didn’t really spark much interest until I started this quilt.  This block has many different names and variations, but mostly commonly I’ve seen it called a Celtic knot, and often a lovers knot, or slip knot.  

Whenever I’m designing with pre-cuts, my main goal is to be able to make a Throw size quilt with just one Jelly Roll or Layer Cake.  It makes my brain work and takes a little creativity to be able to get enough fabric and blocks out of the strips…I love the challenge. 

For this quilt, there are a handful of scrappy blocks thrown in that allow this quilt to be made with less strips/squares.  You can certainly leave them out if you have more fabric available, but I ended up loving the way they add a little interest to this design.

Knot and Thread Design did the quilting, it adds the perfect amount of texture and character that this quilt needs. 

This pattern includes 5 sizes, and will probably be the pattern I use to make a Queen size quilt for my 15 year old.  It has a more masculine feel and he likes geometric designs….but mostly it’s easy and I like easy when it comes to making big quilts!

Forget-Me-Not isn’t available yet if you would like to make this exact quilt, but as soon as it comes out I’ll post where you can find it!
