This week my Studio is being repainted and redecorated by little ole me. That means absolutely no sewing time. While painting, the quilt ideas seem to creep into my overly quilty obsessed brain. Luckily I can get my sewing fix from playing around in EQ7 each evening. Yesterday evening I came up with another design using the Back Porch Blooms block and the Butterfly block. It finishes at 49.5" square. A good size for a baby quilt, a large wall hanging or a super cute large table topper. I'm calling this one "Ring around the Posy".
Oh yes, I'll make this quilt someday. All the open space for quilting...feathers, feather, feathers!
Here's some basic quilty math for those of you who would like to make it.
I used the same butterfly block as in the last quilt "Hello Spring". This time it's framed, but the frame is different than the one in the tutorial that can be found here. Just omit the on point frame part of the tutorial and add this one.
You'll also need the "Back Porch Blooms" block tutorial that can be found here.
If you visiting for the first time, the "Back Porch Blooms" is a very relaxed quilt along I'm having here on my blog. There's linky parties and giveaways, you can read more about it in the link provided for the block tutorial. You can find all tutorials and posts by clicking on the "Back Porch Bloom" image in the right sidebar.
As I was writing this post a little idea hopped into my thoughts. What about adding this adorable little bunny to the "Ring Around the Posy" quilt? You can find the tutorial for the bunny in my Tutorials tab at the top of this blog. The tutorial sets the block on point, which would work nicely in this quilt. Just trim the block to 9.5".
