Graphic Florals - Purl Bee pattern

After my last project involving 110 blocks and lots of precision, I decided that I need to do a simple, yet pretty quilt.  Something that would show off some of the larger patterns I've picked up, but that would not necessarily require seams to match up.  So, I've decided to go with a pattern that I've been kicking around for some time. 

It's from Purl Bee and it's called A Wedding Quilt. I think it's appropriate to do a wedding quilt since I just finished the spinster quilt and I might as well keep that theme going.  But, since I'm not making it for anyone's wedding, I've decided to call this the Graphic Florals Quilt because of the lovely pattern of graphic flowers that I'm using.  Feel free to go to Purl Bee to check out what it is going to look like.  

The first set of colors and prints. 

All the colors and patterns, cut and completed. 
The pattern is fairly easy, just a lot of cutting up front.  I finished up all the colors and patterns tonight and will next need to start cutting 96 12.5 by 3.5 white pieces.  That's the hard work.  I can play on the layout a bit and then start assembling.

The fun thing about this pattern is that it should come together quickly.  Then, I get to go to my next project which will be much, much more difficult.   Just a little hint - I've decided that it should involve way too many HSTs.


  1. Fantastic fabric choices for that pattern!

  2. Looks like a great idea for those fabrics. Looking forward to seeing it put together
