I am so excited to have finally finished this flower quilt for my daughter! It’s my first time doing appliqué on a full quilt and also my first time trying out free motion quilting. Lori Holt’s Bloom quilt pattern on her blog and her videos made it so easy to learn her appliqué method. I’m hooked!
For the quilting I was inspired by Lori’s original quilt. I did straight line quilting along the sashing and a small meandering free motion design within the flower quilt blocks. It was my first time doing quilting on my Juki Tl-2010Q which was a total delight.
I really enjoyed Lori’s method of appliqué using sew-in interfacing and her Sew Simple Shapes. I feel like this will help the flowers hold up really well, even with regular washing. I’m expecting this will be a quilt that gets washed more than others since it will be on a child’s bed!
Aren’t the fabrics so adorable? Thank you Lori for a fun quilt design!
