I finally got one time to haul out my sewing machine and make some progress on my Wildflowers and Honey Quilt. The top row are the left over single colour blocks, and the bottom row are the random blocks I made from the remaining fabric.
Way back when I purchased a set of fat quarters from Connecting Threads‘ Wildflowers and Honey line. This past spring I used that gorgeous fabric to piece together quilt blocks based on the Paving Stones Quilt from Stitch Savvy by Deborah Moebes. My intention was to go for a subtle rainbow effect so I tried to keep similar coloured fabrics together, so I have green, blue, purple, yellow/orange, and red blocks.
I finally got a chance to put together the quilt top.
Remember how one of my resolutions was only to buy that one specific fabric collection this year? Well it was just days after that post that Connecting Threads released the Wildflowers and Honey fabric line, the one I’ve been waiting for all these months. Needless to say I purchased some right away.
I had a look at the different quilt kits they had available, and I loved the homespun feel of all of them, but none of them really caught my eye. I love this fabric and I wanted a quilt that would showcase large pieces of it. So instead of any of the kits I bought a fat quarter sampler and will figure out a pattern later on.
