Periwinkle Flower Garden – Part 1

“Periwinkle Flower Garden”

About the Quilt:

I fell in love with Moda’s Meadowbloom fabrics and snatched up a layer cake as soon as my favorite quilt shop got them in stock!  I paired the layer cake with a new template – the Periwinkle (Kite) shape that gives this pattern its name!

The Periwinkle Template is the perfect size for trimming a 5″ or 10″ square into periwinkles, but then you’ve got little bits of scrap fabric.  I didn’t want to waste any of my Meadowbloom!  So I designed a pattern that would allow me to use the extra pieces.  It gives the quilt a very scrappy look, but scrappy is in!  To give the eye a chance to “rest”, I added internal borders in a neutral.  After the quilt top was all pieced together, I decided to add a green border (using 7 strips from the small green jelly roll) to really accent the garden theme.

  • Meadowbloom by Moda (Bright, bold prints in Pink, White, Yellow, Green, Blue, and Purple)
