French Flowers - Sept. mystery quilt

September was a blur as it just zipped on by.  It's already mystery quilt time again.

If you are needing a quilt for Christmas gift-giving, this one fits the bill.  The quilt is quick and simple but the results are amazing - a perfect blend of modern and vintage.

Not sure the tutorial will  be needed for this one but here we go:

Cut out five of the flower shapes from the blue medallion fabric.  Cut 5 flower centers from the gold.  Appliqué each flower to a 10 inch square.  We simply glued the flower in place with Elmer’s washable school glue and stitched around the edge to secure.  This allows the edges to fray a little when the quilt is laundered.

Arrange and sew the 10 inch squares into 5 rows with 5 squares in each row.  Make sure to place a flower appliqué in each of the five rows.  

The block rows should measure 47 ½ inches long.  (If yours is slightly different adjust the sashing rows to fit.)  Create the sashing rows by sewing a 1 ½ inch blue hexagon print between two of the 2 inch light strips to create the needed length (47 ½ inches).  Sew a 1 inch blue medallion strip to each side of this section.  

Create 4 sashing sets.  Sew between each of the four rows of squares. 

Quilt as desired.  Launder to fluff the raw edges and enjoy!

We are still undecided on fabrics for next month's mystery.  We will post a photo when we can.

Remember - $5.55 fabrics this Friday.  Stop in for a great deal on some yardage!
