Flower Garden Quilt !

I have been busy making flowers for my quilt ,my little fingers fly over material, I love having so much material on hand, I get to chose a different pattern for each flower.Its exciting!


As of today I have 90 flowers made,at the beginning I sewed a few together to see what it would look like, now I am just concentrating on making the flowers, wonder how many I need to make ?? does anyone out there know ????
If you do please drop me a line !!
Eventually I will have to sew them together for now I am content just making them.
Keeps my fingers busy ! (( I am so easy to keep happy))

That is going to be a beautiful quilt. Isn't it fun to have a hand sewing project to work on? How many more do you need?

I enlarged the photos, and they are beautiful, Diane! Absolutely precious. I don't know how many. I'd lay them out in rows across the bed. That's what I always did to know when to stop. I am so envious. I don't think my arthritis would let me do all that hand sewing, but I would just love to do it! Also take into account a border, if you want one.

What an exciting idea. This is going to be a different looking quilt, and I think that it'll be gorgeous!

Are you doing all that BY HAND? OMG, I'd be crazy after the first one, but then, I have NO patience. It is beautiful,though, you will have a work of art when you are finished! Do you hand quilt it when you get the top done?

When I did my flower garden quilt I had another row around them. I've never counted how many, so when I have time on the weekend I check and see how many I used. Yours will be gorgeous.

Your flower garden quilt is going to be gorgeous! I have no idea how many you would need to make!

I have one which was made for me by my late Grandma many years ago. It is pictured on my blog along with my little grand-dau who also loves quilts.

I have made many of the "petals" for a flower garden quilt, but have not as of yet sewn into flowers. Thanks for the inspiration!

P.S. I found your site while visiting Needled Mom's blog.

This is going to be beautiful. I love quilts, but sadly don't sew and they're so darned expensive to buy. Even thrift stores around here keep them expensive. I can't wait to see yours all completed.

As much ow as you had... this looks like a great project to keep you occupied until spring thaw.

I found your blog through "Blog Around the World". It's great to find other CANADIANS.

Do you recall where you found the pattern and do you require to back the quilt. It looks simple enough that I may want to try my hand at it with my daughter.

I'd love to hear back.

Oh Boy! Your flowers are gorgeous. The quilt is going to be really something special.

It appears that you have finished each flower completely, then you just whip the flowers together. I am guessing that's the way it is. My mom does some quilts that way and when the pieces are sewed together, it is finished.(a somewhat 'quilt as you go' type)I am not a quilter as such, but I do collect material and do all sorts of things with it, including making a few small quilts occasionally.Love you blog.
