Ahhh... i am so excited to visit all of you at Stash Manicure today.
Let me introduce myself, I am Rebecca from Chasing Cottons. I'm a mum who has a serious addiction to Fabric (and mmm stashing fabric), Sewing and Designing Quilts.
Its getting a little cold and grey here in Australia, so i was wrapped when Madame Samm asked me to be apart of her SPRING Month!!Eden's Garden Quilt with you.
Eden's Garden is made up of 12 flower blocks. All machine pieced but they have an applique look. I know what your thinking... all those curves!!!... Please i beg of you... Don't be put off by a little curve.. I cant express to you enough.. how easy they are! All you need is your magic weapon...PINS!! I have a tutorial here that includes a section on sewing this same curve. Easy Peasy!
I have used 12 fat quarters for each of these flowers.... BUT ... there is no stopping you from using up your stash.
For each Flower block you need : -
8 - 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" blocks of one colour
8 - 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" blocks of another colour
12 - 3 1/2" x 3 1/2" blocks of your background fabric..i used Kona snow.
Perhaps you may want to give one block a try??? You could make it into a Pillow?? You could even sew a decorative button in the centre?? For Stash Manicure Readers, You can download the Template HERE and if you would like the whole complete Pattern to make this Quilt.. you can get it from HERE.
Because I absolutely LOVE sewing...and Making Quilts... I'm hosting a 12 week FREE Online Sewing Class from my blog Chasing Cottons...
HERE and the first class just started with a great Giveaway HERE.
Thank you, Thank you, Madame Samm for letting me come visit today and share with you ALL of my favourite things.... Flowers, Fabrics, Sewing and Quilts!! xx
