Patches of Flowers – Another Petticoats and Pinafores Finished Quilt

We have another Petticoats and Pinafores quilt!

We rode the coat-tails of our Petticoats and Pinafores Checkerboard Quilt and used what was left of our fat quarter bundle to whip up this amazing quilt.

This layout is a slight variation of our Bricks Pattern but the pattern turned out completely different!

For our Patches of Flowers quilt, we created finished 3” x 10” units which consist of a 3” x 7” printed rectangles combined with a 3” x 3” squares.  We combined (2) units to make 6” x 10” blocks.  There are a lot of ways to join the units.  You can sew them in long rows to desired length and then combine them until you reach desired width.  Or you can sew (2) or (3) units together to make blocks – I think it’s your preference.  We chose to make the long rows and press our seams one way to have a nice flat quilt top.

We absolutely love the vintage feel of this 1930’s reproduction fabric collection.  The longer rectangles in our quilt pattern really allow for a lot of fabric play and it showcases all the intricate flowers and geometric shapes.  Doesn’t it look like a field of flowers?

We used the same binding and back as our Checkerboard quilt.  The back of this quilt features a beautiful soft pink and red “Banner in Pink” by Riley Blake Designs from their Vintage Dream collection.  The binding is “Dress Stripes in Red” by Dear Stella from their Intermix Basics.  The quilt binding has been meticulously machined-stitched.

The quilt is quilted with simple straight lines in white thread along all the seams and ½” on either side – this gives the quilt a wonderful feel and beautiful drape.

This quilt measures a little bit bigger than our usual quilts at 48” x 61”, and it’s going to make an amazing lap quilt.  We are thinking this quilt would be the perfect gift for a mom, mother-in-law, or grandmother.   It’s definitely long enough to cover someone who is lying down or someone who is cuddling up on the couch.

This quilt is available in our shop  and comes with a matching throw pillow.

And if you’re thinking of creating a version for yourself, our Bricks Pattern is a beginner-friendly pattern that uses rectangles and 1” strip units.  The pattern only calls for basic straight-line sewing.  You can use our pattern as a guide and just alter the dimensions.

Thanks for stopping by and checking out our finished quilt!  Please see below for a list of a few of our favorite tools we used to cut the units.

See you soon!
