From Floral Border Stripe, selectively cut:

  • 4 strips, 8-1/2" x length of fabric, for border (Note: Selectively cut each border strip so that the design is the same in each strip, as shown in the photo. This will make the design match at the mitered corners.)

Block Assembly:

Notes:

  • All seams 1/4". Press seams in direction of arrows unless otherwise instructed. Assembly instructions are the same for both quilts.
  • Before starting to sew, divide 1-1/2"-wide strips into two stacks: one stack with green strips, and one stack with blue and orange strips (Blue Quilt) – OR – red and orange strips (Red Quilt). Refer oſten to photographs for fabric placement.
  1. With raw edges even and right sides together, position a Large Floral 6-1/2" square at one end of an assorted-print 1-1/2" x 40" strip (use a blue or orange strip if making the Blue Quilt – OR – a red or orange strip if making the Red Quilt). Stitch square to strip as shown, starting and stopping your stitching about 1/8" before and aſter the square. Using a ruler and rotary cutter, trim the strip edges even with the square. Press seams toward strip.

Mitered Borders:

With right sides together (and making sure that the design is oriented correctly, with the tonal portion of the design at the inner border), pin border strips to sides of quilt top (border strips should extend approximately equally beyond top and bottom of quilt; it’s easiest if you start pinning at the center of border and work outward). Sew border strips to sides of quilt top, beginning and ending 1/4" from raw edges of quilt. Backstitch to secure. Press seams toward borders. Now pin and sew the top and bottom border to the quilt top; start and stop your seams at the point where the side borders join the quilt (1/4" from edges). Backstitch to secure. Press seams toward borders. Miter corners using your favorite technique.


Finishing:

Layer quilt top, batting, and backing. Quilt as desired. Bind. Don’t forget to sign and date your finished quilt.

Looking at this quilt, I would never think it to be considered an easy pattern. I love, love, love this in the blue colors. I have always loved a blue and yellow combination in home decorating. Has anyone else made this and would you mind sharing a photo if you can? I am in love with this quilt!!

This is a wonderful looking quilt. Love the dimension using florals.

Love these quilts, especially the blue sunflower one: Sunshine Log Cabin.

Beautiful quilt...how did you achieve the look where the flowers appears to be spilling over the edge of the border?
