Tutorial Throwback Thursday - Florabelle Bloom

My perennials starting blooming this week, and what a wonderful heart warmer that was!!!  I don't have much of a green thumb, so when anything comes back the following year I am thrilled ;)   So, . I just knew we needed to do another fun flower quilt for our  Throwback Thursday , And I thought going back  be perfect to go back 3 years to the Florabelle Bloom quilt would be just perfect!!!    Isn't it just so happy with those petals popping from the centers!!!

Florabelle Bloom really is a fun quilt to make and looks harder than it is.  It really is just sewing some HST's and some Squares, and you can whip whip this up in no time.    And it is just so fun to mix and match the prints in the flowers, making up a new combo of colors for each one!!!  Andthere is also some sashing, which is great to learn if you haven't tried that before ;)    It finishes at 66" x 82" so it makes a great size for snuggling up in or lying out in the sun!!    

Florabelle Bloom is a Fat Quarter Friendly quilt and uses 21 Fat Quarters.  So you can easily grab a bundle and get stitching.   And I used some larger prints, but they got a little lost in the design, so I would recommend using medium to small scale prints for this design ;) I have even seen this done in Red, White, and Blue, and it makes for a great Americana design :)  Just grab a fun colorful bundle that speaks to you and is just waiting to be made up into blooming flowers!!!     

Florabelle Bloom was so fun to make and I am so wanting to make it again, but I am thinking of doing it in a rainbow layout of flowers with the secondary corners being all green.  And who knows, maybe I will even do some scrap busting instead of using Fat Quarters.  I seriously need to bust some scraps ;)   Wouldn't that be just to cute!!   

And that is my Florabelle Bloom Quilt!!!     I hope you have enjoyed today's Tutorial Throwback Thursday as much as I have!!!      To make your own Florabelle Bloom quilt  just click on any of the project name links for the free step by step tutorial.    And when you are done,  I would love to see your Quilts!!  You can email me a picture at, post it to social media with #happyquiltingwithmc  :)   I can't wait to see your Florabelle Bloom Quilts!!
