SPRING GARDEN Quilt Pattern OUT NOW!
March 08, 2023
Spring Garden is the second pattern in my Garden Series. If you want to check out the first - Summer Garden - you can read about it here! Summer Garden is actually getting a re-vamp this month and the new version will be available in April after little TLC. The Garden Series will feature Autumn Garden and Winter Garden as well, which are both currently in the works. Make sure to check back soon for more updates about the Garden Series!
When I sat down to design this pattern, I really wanted it to feel springy. What better way to do this than to include butterflies? Each corner of the flower blocks throughout this quilt have cute, little butterflies made up of simple triangle shapes. I feel like this addition to the quilt blocks give the flowers so much personality!
Spring Garden is Fat Quarter (FQ) and Half Yard (HY) friendly and comes in 4 sizes ranging from Baby to Bed. For my cover quilt, I decided to go the HY route and made the Throw size version. The fabrics that I used in the quilt are Michael Miller Cotton Couture in the colors Spa, Celestial, Iris, Saturn, Seafoam, Mermaid, Caribbean, Marine, Pink, Lagoon for the flowers, Orchid for the Centers, and Soft White for the background.
For my backing fabric, I wanted to tie in a color from the quilt top but I didn't want a fabric that would compete with it. I decided on using Michael Miller Cotton Couture in the color Saturn.
The binding on this quilt is actually two different fabrics! I'm not usually one to bind my quilts with scrappy binding so this was definitely not planned. I originally intended to bind using Orchid to match the center fabric, but ended up needing to sub in Iris because I ran out of Orchid. There was a slight moment of panic, but I think it turned out okay! What do you think?
Last but not least - the quilting! I had the pleasure of working with Katie Hanson of Modern Textiles. You can find Katie on Instagram at @moderntextiles. Of course we had to go with a fun, springy panto on this one! She used the pantograph Floral Fun by Dastardly Line Quilting (@longarm.quilting.glasgow).
I had so much fun making this Spring Garden quilt! If you would like to make your own version, you can pick up the pattern in my shop now using the buttons below. Make sure to share your quilt with me on Instagram and use the hashtag #SpringGardenQuilt so I can see it!
