Flower Patch Quilt. Hi, Kathy here from Gathering Friends to show you how to create this festive 57-1/2″ x 67″ quilt.

Flower Patch Quilt

I had so much fun making this quilt and it went together so fast. This is a great beginners pattern, just leave off the appliqué. You can make this in time for Spring from your favorite packet of layer cakes, by adding an accent color and a little bit of pop with the appliqué flower. The ribbons of color add happy motion to the quilt, breaking up that block look while still keeping it simple. This pattern allows you to incorporate your favorite color into the quilt to make it unique. Lone Star Baby Quilt Tutorial, Part II. Today we’re going to finish the baby quilt we started in Part 1 by stitching the three layers together—the actual quilting part of the process —and finishing the edge—or binding the quilt.

Make sure quilt top is well pressed and flat. Fabric requirements: Batting 41″ x 41″ Backing 1 ¼ yard Binding 3/8 yard—cut into 4 strips 2 ½″ x 42″ Let’s talk about batting. There are lots of batting options—you can read more details in this batting post, but to sum up, since I’m going to machine quilt this myself, I like to use a low-loft cotton or cotton/poly blend batting. Center the pieced quilt top on batting and backing fabric with the right sides facing away from the batting. After I’ve put the three layers together, I like to take all three layers to the ironing board and iron them all together. Before we can quilt the layers together, we need to baste the quilt.

Incidentally, my husband's Grandmother's name was Opal, sister to his Great Aunt Ruby. I have also included instructions for a pieced backing using your leftover fabric. Without further ado...
