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.

  2. 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!

  3. 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!

  4. Connie, I absolutely love this table runner! My home, family members and a few friends are blessed with table runners you published! Your tutorials are wonderful and so easy to follow, and as I have mentioned before, my favorite website!!

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

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. What a pretty garden block. You have even inspired me to try appliqué work again. Mine has always wound up wonky!

  11. This is such a sweet row and a perfect table runner if you aren’t doing a quilt! I love those colors in that thread collection – I piece in a lot of different colors but beige and grays are my go tos.

  12. Love Love LOVE your Row for the QAL!! Your flowers aren’t just plain-jane flowers – they’re gorgeous!!

  19. 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.

Thank you so much for sharing the row you designed, it will be a fabulous addition! Have a spectacular day!
