Flower Maze Quilt

Garden Maze is finished and makes me want spring flowers blooming in my yard. It is March and instead we have 5 inches of snow.

I wanted to take pictures outside and thought this pile of snow would work…..of course there was a little wind blowing……

Okay, I did want to show the back. I was able to use a couple of green fabrics that had been in my stash a very long time.

Lets try it on the snow covered steps…..nope not working.

This quilt is 50 x 62 inches.

I think I started the floral blocks about 2 years ago, making one or two at a time. Many of them are made using my Sizzix Big Shot die cutter and floral dies.

The blocks started out as neutral string pieced blocks and then I started doing some free motion applique flowers.

I don’t remember where the light green print fabric came from…..I think it may have been one that was in my mom’s stash. I remember starting the blocks and when I pulled them out this week I realized I only had enough left to make a few more blocks. That is how I decided what size to make this quilt….when I ran out of fabric….I stopped.

My original plan was to put the blocks on the diagonal but I still really like this. I quilted it on my vintage 15-91 Singer.

I have a post here that shows some of the blocks I was working on in April of 2012.

I had to show one more photo of my spirals in the snow and it was funny how many people said it looked like a crop circle….that was what I was thinking when I made it….just couldn’t remember what it was called.

I also got a better photo of a tow boat pushing barges down the Mississippi River in the snow. It would have been neat if my quilt had been lying on the deck rail. Note to self: remember this for another quilt.

  1. Absolutely stunning! Congratulations on another beautiful finish!

  2. The quilt is beautiful, each one of the flowers in the floral blocks are fantastic. I love the photos of your quilt on the snow. I've always thought about the possibility of buying a Sizzix Big Shot machine and when I see the appliqués that you do, I think maybe it would be worth it. Congratulations for finishing this beautiful quilt is a work of art!

    Beautiful quilt, and I loved all the photos. I'm hungry for Spring too. We got some of the tail end snow from that storm last night, but it has all melted now, and I think it has finally stopped dropping more.

    Temps in the 50s tomorrow!

  4. Absolutely beautiful! Love the pictures in the snow!

    Beautiful quilt! You may not have spring weather right now, but that quilt is sure to remind you it's on it's way.

  21. It turned out great – and I finally figured out why I couldn't post yesterday. Had to laugh that you couldn't remember what crop circles were called – stuff like that happens to me a lot more than I like to admit.

  23. Oh Connie! It is absolutely beautiful! Pictures are amazing too! 😉

  24. Your quilt and the photographs are exceptional. I always love to see the quilt photographed in different settings. Beautiful post!

    Seeing this quilt on the snow is like the first crocuses of the season peeking through! It's a gorgeous finish – love it!

  26. This is lovely and even though set in snow – it gives hope for those first early blooms to peek thru.

  27. it looks gorgeous!!
    I'm getting an embroidery machine and was thinking flower blocks like these embroidered would look cool in a quilt!

  28. It is a beautiful finish, Connie. It does add some lovely color to a snowy day. Spring will be here soon.
