Where is your happy place?  Everyone who knows me knows that I am always happy when I’m in my quilt room. When I’m outside, I enjoy taking care of my flowers so for this blog hop I chose that as my happy place.

Today I get to share my Wild Flowers row as part of the My Happy Place Row Along put on by Seams To Be Sew. Thank you, Marian, for all of the work you put into your blog hops!

Northcott generously supplied me with the fabrics for my Wild Rows Flowers row. I chose their beautiful Single Colorway collection. In my pattern, I have included each fabric number so you can get the same exact fabrics.

I also used my favorite Aurifil threads and keep reading as my giveaway today is an Aurifil thread collection!

Wild Flowers Row made with fabrics from Northcott

I decided to make my row into a long wall hanging or I may end up using it on one of our tables.

I always sew my binding on with my vintage 15-91 Singer sewing machine and I used the little wonder clips to keep the folded for this project.

Here is a closeup of one of the blocks. There are actually three blocks in my Wild Rows Flower row. I applied Heat n Bond Lite to the fabrics I used for my applique flowers. The applique is just a simple raw-edge free motion stitching around the pieces.

I hope you like my Wild Rows Flower quilt project and if you make it I would love to see a picture of it! It would be great to combine in a row quilt with several of the other beautiful rows included in this blog hop.

  4. Dawn Nelson says:

    What a sweet table runner!! It is certainly “Spring” worthy. Here on the Central Coast of Oregon we are surely ready for spring to arrive as, I’m sure, are many other places. We’ve grown tired of the rain and it’s time for some sunshine.
    Loved the photo the other day of Rusty laying on his back. He’s definitely feeling like he’s got a forever home.
    Hope you have a great weekend!

  5. This spring table runner is a wonderful way to start the month of April. I have never appliqued or done free motion before.

  6. Your postings always make my day. I would love to see a picture of all your finished projects. You must have a room full.

  7. So subtle! But really nice to have the gradations in the background.
    Another lovely single digit winter day but have lots of fabrics to keep me warm!

    1. Love the flowers – a promise that it will be spring here EVENTUALLY. And your directions are always so well done. Thanks!

  14. Liz Horgan says:

    Such a happy, bright row!
    Thank you!

  15. Connie, your row is just up my garden alley! Next to my sewing room, my garden is my favorite place to hang out! I’m loving the contrasting threads you chose to stitch down the flower heads….so pretty!

  16. Beautiful flowers. Thanks for sharing your Happy Place.

  20. Kathie weatherford says:

    I always love to read your blog. especially the pictures by the river.

  21. Thnak you. I love your row and will probably do.

  22. beautiful flowers, thanks for joining the row a long, and sharing your design. I do love flowers. the garden is definitely a happy place.

  23. This is beautiful! I really like the different flowers and am already thinking about how I can use this row.

    I’m a first time visitor and I notice that you show your vintage 15-91 Singer. My dad recently found me a vintage Singer that I believe is also a 15-91. (He’s in another state and I haven’t seen the machine yet.) Do you have any suggestions for resources for getting the machine in working condition? Or resources for parts? I have not really started my research yet of how to get it in working order and any help or tips would be greatly appreciated.

  24. Your flowers make ME happy! Thank you for sharing them!

  25. It’s funny, I’m not a “flower” person when it comes to the “normal” female things but I LOVE floral fabric and patterns that are for quilting! If you were to sit myself and my husband down and then had us pick something for the home, he would pick something floral and I would pick something plaid … lol BUT, this row you did is beautiful! I love how simple it is, like a row of planted flowers.

  26. Your row is very pretty. The simplicity of the flowers makes it that way. I like the variation of the background, too. Thank you for sharing this pattern with us.

  27. This row is so fun and has so many fun ideas you could use it with, from a springtime theme to a summer picnic for table mats. One could even separate the flowers and put them on a jacket. I just love the simplicity of this row and the great way you’ve used the fabrics to bring it to life. It’s just fun, Connie. Of course, I want to thank you for participating in the row along it’s always a great time to come and visit your blog and see what you’ve been up to.

  28. Nancy House says:

    Hello Connie; Your row of applique flowers is delightful! Like you, I also love working in my flower gardens. Having the tall flowers, like Cosmos and Sunflowers, are something I truly enjoy adding to my gardens and seeing your flowers made me think of them. These fabrics you were able to use are so pretty and the way that you arranged them just adds that charm along with your lovely skill at Freemotion stitching. Thank you so much for sharing the row you designed, it will be a fabulous addition! Have a spectacular day!

  76. I love this and the fabric couldn’t be more perfect. In fact I am going to check out this fabric for a new design I am working on.
