Most of the quits I have made are just for love and I have given them away but, this is one quilt which I made for myself. It is not fancy or difficult but I love it.
I just adore florals and so for a long time I collected ones that I liked. I sewed squares of them together to represent a floral garden.
This quilt has travelled with me, it’s on my lap when I’m watching TV (or catching a few zzzz) I feel happy under it.
I just love utilitarian quilts which can be used and loved.
This quilt is a simple construction and it is lap sized. Would also make a great gift or charity quilt or one you really neeeeed for yourself.
Finished quilt size 44″ x 55″.
Instructions to make Susies Garden Lap Quilt
All seams based on 1/4″.
All fabrics have been washed and lightly pressed before use.
You will need 80 of 6″ x 6″squares of floral fabrics, (finishing at 5 1/2″ x 5 1/2″, assuming all seams are based on 1/4″). The squares will be laid out in a 8 x 10 configuration.
Use at least 10 different floral fabrics to create variation.
Lay out your blocks 4 x 5 ensuring no two same fabrics abut.
Sew the blocks together. Press. There is your quilt top. Quilt and bind as desired. Have fun using it.
