I fell in love with The Cottage Garden by The Quilted Fish at spring market and knew I had to make a quilt with it. The colors and prints are just fabulous. Seriously, I loved reading the text print anytime I was sewing with it, the quotes are awesome!!!
I decided to do a spin on a postage stamp quilt, adding sashing and some applique to make it pop :) The quilt really is easy and goes together in a snap with very minimal cutting ;)
A close up on the applique ;) I quilted dense loops around it to really make it stand out and then added the adorable stitched button to give it that finishing touch ;) Love it!!
And to add to the "postage stamp" concept, I quilted each of the blocks with a scallop border and a different flower in the center. I think it turned out pretty cute ;)
The quilt finishes at 55 1/2" x 55 1/2", perfect for wrapping up a wee one or even a toddler ;) I have one here that wants to claim this one ;) So if you have someone special you want to make a Cottage Stamp quilt for just pop on over to the Riley Blake Blog for the full step-by-step tutorial :)
Have a Happy Quilting Day!!!
