Get the Illusion of Curves Without Curved Piecing!
We had to really look at this quilt to realize that it’s made from simple straight piecing. The placement of fabric pieces and the curved quilting combine to make the flower petals look curved. Nice!
The combination of large and small flowers adds a lot of interest to this quilt. Make it up in scraps or choose a particular color combo for a more coordinated look. Whether you quilt in curves or not, the flowers will shine against a neutral background.
The quilt by Gerri A. Robinson of Planted Seed Designs is 60″ x 60″. She recommends the Tri-Recs Tool by EZ Quilting for cutting, but you can also make and use plastic templates.
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!
