Flower Patch QAL Quilt Top Finished!!

 1 
Okay, so I started this project back in June and I was so happy that so many of you joined me with my first Quilt Along.  It has been a low key, make at your own pace kind of project, but I have still felt the need to get mine finished.  Now I just need to get it quilted!  For those of you who are still working on yours, or would like to still make your quilt - please do.  I have the PDF version of my Flower Patch pattern still on sale here.
I won't get to the quilting for a couple months because of other quilts that need to be finished first, so I appreciate your patience with me on that if you have been waiting to see how I am going to quilt this top.

I used 1 layer cake and 1 jelly roll for the quilt top.  Angela Yosten's Flats was my fabric of choice and I love how it turned out.  I have an equivalent of 4 jelly roll strips left of my fabric, so this pattern really uses most of the layer cake and jelly roll without much waste.

When I first designed this pattern I just loved it.  I love flowers and to transfer that love of flowers to pieced blocks is just too fun!

This happens to be my favorite color combo and block.  The red and orange are just so great together.

It was a stretch for me to add the grey into the quilt, but I do love it.

So, how are you coming along with yours? Share your pictures on my Flickr group here.

Very cute Judi, I think one of my granddaughters would like this. I look forward to seeing how you quilt this.

Ooh, I love how you used green ric rac trim for the flower stems! This quilt top makes me happy -- and no matter how long we have to wait to see it quilted, I know that whatever you do will be worth the wait.

Beautiful Judi! Thanks for sharing the pics!

I resisted joining in when you first introduced the sew along, but seeing this lovely quilt again, I just had to jump in an purchase the pattern. I'm thinking batik fabrics....

Judi, I like your color choices and I can't wait to see how you are going to quilt it. I am glad it won't be for a while. Hopefully I can piece mine on time for the quilting. I have been so busy with moving, and with customers' quilts I haven't started it yet. I started cutting the fabrics though and hopefully one of these days I can sit at the sewing machine and just piece. I can dream.

Sooo glad this is a relaxed sort of QAL... Really want to do this one as I so admire your quilting, but suddenly got really busy and didn't manage to do it yet.. With a couple of months till the quilting I might still manage! YAY! xx

Love that pattern! I'm sorry I just found your blog, or I'd have been making one too. Maybe after my move and once I get settled in my new place, I'll be able to start one!

Nice quilttop you have made.
Have a great and creative week end.

Really cute and will make a nice little girls quilt. I bought the PDF version and printed it 11" x 17" which makes it easier to read since I'm a little older now! Love the service you guys provide!
