Little Blooms – Friday Finish

Posted on: November 14th, 2014 by Lorna McMahon

Little Blooms is blowing in the breeze!

This quilt is my favorite so far.  I love the pieced blocks.  In my previous post about these Little Blooms, many left comments that they were reminded of butterflies.  My readers never cease to provide me with inspiration.  Your kindness and compliments are so greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your support and for being my good friends!

Not wanting to distract from the pieced blocks, I quilted both horizontally and vertically along all of the sashing and borders.  I think a decorative stitch, such as the serpentine stitch, would have looked good here, too.

For the backing, from the Just My Type collection by Patty Young for Michael Miller Fabrics, we have Letterpress in Multi.  The matching binding is Color Keys, also in Multi.  These bright and grainy prints remind me of Popsicles!  Yum, yum, yummy!

This quilt finish was the 17th use of my 100 labels ordered from

Little Blooms finished at approximately 40″ x 47″  is now listed in my Etsy store along with other Quilts for Sale.  The quilt pdf pattern is available in my pattern store here!
