Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilted Pillowcases Part 1

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilted Pillowcases

Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilted Pillowcases are a great addition to a flower garden quilt or a plain bedspread that will make the flowers pop. Part 1 explains how to piece the top for these lovely homemade pillow cases. In order to begin this project, you will need to complete the Grandmother's Garden Flowers tutorial, which teaches you how to make the hexagon flowers used in this quilted pillow pattern.

Instructions:

  1. Lay your flower blocks out using the chart below, arranging where you want the different colors to go. On the chart the heavy black lines show one flower and its connecting hexagons. This is designed so that when side A is sewn to side A, you will have a tube of fabric.

  2. Using the chart, sew connecting hexagons to the first flower block. Do not sew over a seam (go right up to it, though) and lock the sewing when it begins or ends at a seam. This will keep your points sharp.

  3. Move on to the next block. Again, using the chart to see where they go, sew the correct number of hexagons onto the second flower block. Pin it to the first block.
