Prairie Blossoms Quilt is Easier Than it Looks |
A Great Project for a Favorite Jelly Roll!
This quilt looks complex but it’s fairly simple to make. Start with 2 1/2″ strips, then cut and piece them into blocks reminiscent of spring flowers. We love the soft colors shown here but it would be very striking in vivid hues. The pieced inner border echos the colors in the flower blocks.
Use a favorite jelly roll for this quilt, or dig into your stash. The scrappy look is pulled together with yellow squares scattered throughout the design. Use whatever color works best with your fabrics for those squares.
We can easily imagine this striking design made up in several different color combos. Choose light, medium or dark values (keep your fabrics about the same value) and muted or vivid colors (again, keep them about the same intensity). Think about varying the background color as well. Your quilt is sure to be gorgeous in whatever colors you choose.
The finished quilt by designer Jane Vaughan is about 60″ x 72″. Add another row of blocks for a larger quilt, or create fewer for a small quilt.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
