Give it a Scrappy Look or Coordinate the Colors!
So many of our favorite elements combine in this sensational quilt. We love the retro style fabrics, the lovely colors and the beautiful design. Hexie flowers, sawtooth sashing and a piano key border add to its abundant charm.
Piecing is simple for this quilt, as is the applique. Finish it with beautiful longarm or free motion quilting, or design a complementary straight line quilting pattern.
This isn’t the quickest quilt to make but it’s well worth the loving effort. You’re sure to cherish this quilt for many years to come.
The “Grandmother’s Flowerpots” quilt shown here was created by JoAnn Gemmill from a Marianne Fons design. It was quilted by Kim Norton from A Busy Bobbin.
The pattern is included in the March/April 2006 issue of Love of Quilting.
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
