Summer Flowers Quilt Tutorial
I have another great tutorial to share that has the most beautiful flower garden fabrics and a fat and easy design. Some time ago I showed you a sneak peek at this neat quilt I was working on. This collection is called Block Party and was designed by Ro Gregg for Fabri-Quilt. My quilt is called Flower Garden and is all done!

Updated April 2018

This design would work well with many different fabric panels.

Be sure and look at all of the different quilt panels you can buy at Annie’s.

I had a lot of fun using the beautiful fabrics in Block Party designed by Ro Gregg to create this quilt to share with you.

This quilt is 44 x 44

You will need the following fabrics:

  • 1 2/3 yards of the flower panel #8205
  • 1 fat quarter of yellow #8064
  • 1 fat quarter of light pink #8070
  • 1 fat quarter of medium pink #8065
  • 1 fat quarter of dark pink #8067
  • 1 fat quarter of light purple #8071
  • 1 fat quarter of medium purple #8063
  • 1 fat quarter of dark purple #8068
  • 1 fat quarter of light green #8072
  • 1 fat quarter of dark green #8066
  • 1/2 yard of medium pink #8065 for binding
  • 1 1/2 yard of light pink #8070 for backing

Cut the flower blocks from the panel measuring 9 1/2 inch square. You will need the following:

Here is the Flower Garden quilt all sewn together and the binding added.

The quilt is about 44 x 44 which means a normal width of fabric won’t quite be wide enough for the back. Use the light pink for the backing and you can either add some scraps of the fat quarters or some of the flower panels to give you the width you need.

It was fun to use the beautiful flower panels and do some free motion quilting around them.

All of my piecing and quilting was done on my favorite vintage 15-91 Singer which is only a straight stitch machine.

    Glad your jobs on the deck are nearly finished then more quilting time.

  4. I love the way your quilt has turned out. It is so very ***happy***! Ro Gregg's fabrics just sing, and now you have a quilt that sings too!

  5. Hi Connie! When I saw this quilt a few minutes ago on Pinterest I pinned it right away and came here. The quilt is astonishing! The colors are very beautiful and I love how you arranged the panel in such a symmetrical manner. I also love how you mixed the colors: centre yellow panel surrounded by yellow; the blue squares and rectangles next to the irises, the pink squares next to the roses; the green squares and rectangles next to the sunflowers. Very harmonious! I'd love to make this quilt.

  6. What a great quilt! I have a cute panel that I bought ages ago and after getting it home wondered what the heck I was going to do with it… Anyway after seeing your darling quilt the light bulb went off in my head! Thanks for the inspiration.
