Flowertone quilt pattern

I am so thrilled and excited to launch my newest quilt pattern in my Etsy shop: Flowertone!!!  🌿

This quilt pattern is really so easy and enjoyable to make, as it’s created with units obtained with strip piecing technique. Strip piecing is really just an easier, time-saving method and patchwork technique created by sewing multiple fabric strips together to create a composite unit (a strip set) that is then cut to obtain smaller,  multi-piece segments. Strip piecing eliminates the need to work with small, individual pieces of fabric. 

Prior to cutting your fabric into strips, it is important to check if the fabric edges are straight. To check the edges fold the fabric in half, matching the selvedges. Start cutting strips after ensuring a straight edge at 90° between the WOF and the selvage. Having an accurate seam allowance is necessary for obtaining precise strip sets, especially where multiple strips are sewn together.



This pattern comes in different quilt sizes:

- baby: 16 blocks 
34.5” x 34.5”
- throw: 64 blocks 
66.5” x 66.5”
- bed: 144 blocks 
85” x 85” 

But there's also the possibility to play around the baby size, adding blocks to only two sides rather than all four, making a rectangle shape rather than square.

Blocks are 8.5" x 8.5" unfinished/ 8" x 8" finished size.


This pattern is the second quilt created with my newest fabric collection: Eclectic Intuition, shipping to shops just now, or already available in some.
