Blooms Garden Quilt - A Free Pattern

When I wrote the pattern for my Blooms Mini Quilt from my book - Weekend Quilting I knew that I would need to somehow turn this into a larger quilt.  I have been just so in love with this design that I wanted to do something on a bigger scale.

Hence I have come up with the Blooms Garden Lap Quilt and even better - the pattern is free.  This Lap Quilt measures 60in x 60in (153cm x 153cm) and is the perfect way to extend the Mini Blooms pattern into a Quilt for on the couch or for a bed or even a beautiful picnic quilt.  

To make this Quilt you will need a copy of 

and the pattern which you can download from the link below 

There are also Acrylic Templates available as well for this project which make tracing out your shapes onto your Fusible Web a breeze. 

This pattern is designed as an extension of the pattern from the book so further tips and techniques can be found in the pages as well as all the detailed instructions to Baste and Bind your Quilt of Weekend Quilting. 

For this Quilt I used a Fat Quarter Bundle of Heather Ross' Sleeping Porch  for Windham Fabrics.  It has the sweetest butterflies and snails and was perfect for this Floral inspired quilt design.  The fabrics too - being Lawn are just so soft and work really well against the White Linen I used for the background fabric.

I love using a Triple Stitch on my machine for Raw Edge Appliqué.  I use really shiny threads to give just a bit of sparkle to the design.

I'd love to see any pictures/posts you make of this Quilt so make sure to tag me @tiedwitharibbon in any pics that you post or use the hashtags #tiedwitharibbonpatterns, #weekendquiltingthebook #bloomsgardenquilt.

Happy Sewing

  1. Hello, I found you through the little mushroom cap.com. I visit around and admire your work and have joined your email list. I'm not familiar with the triple stitch, could you explain please? Does the applique not fray when washed?
    Have a great week.

    1. Hello, a Triple Stitch is a particular stitch on the sewing machine. It goes, forward, back and then forward to make each stitch giving it a thickness and definition to each stitch to make it stand out. The project will fray over time - you can use products like "Fray Stoppa" but I think it adds a little character to the quilt over time. Jemima

  2. Hi , I just bought some patterns and two template packages through paypal and it was finished except for the confirmation and then the computer went to an earlier page where I had tried to check-out as a guest where you never
    asked for my card and kept trying to charge me for Australia shipping(so I left that page and wwent to paypal) . What do I do now?

    1. Hi Elise,
      I have just checked and don't have any order from you - it must not have completed with the change of page. I am in Australia and that is why it appears in AU dollars but converts to you currency in PayPal. You will need to place the order again but my email is tiedwitharibbon@gmail.com if you have any further problems or issues. I am sure we can sort it out.
