Quilter’s Cottage: Happy Flowers

For week 3 of the Quilter’s Cottage sewalong with Fat Quarter Shop, we are making our Happy Flowers. We will be making 6 total flowers to line our cobblestone path. I chose 3 shades of peach/orange and plan on arranging my flowers in a gradient along my path. These flowers were so fun to put together, and despite having a lot of small pieces, I found them to be really easy and intuitive.

Quilter’s Cottage: The Actual Cottage

The Quilter’s Cottage Sewalong with Fat Quarter Shop is moving into week 2! This week we are making the actual Quilter’s Cottage. I chose to use Blossom in my block (as I will be doing for the entire quilt) and also chose to make my cottage a bit differently than Lori shows in her pattern. I omitted a color and went for a one color house “siding”, if you will, instead of two.

I went for pink on pink on pink on pink and I wouldn’t change a single thing about this block. I wish my actual real life house had a pink roof and a pink door! For more details about the sewalong, head to the Fat Quarter Shop blog .

Quilter’s Cottage: Flowering Trees

Today kicks off the Quilter’s Cottage sewalong with The Fat Quarter Shop. The Quilter’s Cottage is a new book by Lori Holt. It includes some adorable blocks that make up a dreamy quilt that shows a world we all probably wish were real. Quilts drying on a line. Happy flowers lining a cobblestone path. For the next 9 weeks, we will be sewing a set of blocks every week and in the end, we will finish with a fabulous Lori Holt masterpiece!

I have chosen to sewalong using Blossom fabrics by Christopher Thompson. I loved the challenge of limiting myself to one fabric basic and I can’t wait to see this quilt come together.
