Spring is Here: Make a Blooming Quilt!

Sometimes, the best way to brighten things up is with flowers and we could all use a little bit of bloom in our lives right now!

Fortunately, flowers are easy to embroider and stitch up quickly. That makes them perfect for creating charity quilts!

Linework designs, like the Redwork Flower Blocks from Ace Points Embroidery, stitch up quickly with no color changes. They are ideal for dressing up plain fabrics or light fabric print blocks. Best of all, the stitching can also serve as the quilting. Use the same thread color in the bobbin so that the back looks pretty too.

Even more intricate designs, like Floral Quilt Squares from Kreations by Kara, can be used to decorate and quilt plain blocks.

Fancy Floral Quilting from SewAZ Embroidery is even more detailed. Consider stitching linework designs using variegated thread for added interest without color changes.

Don’t forget the tweens and teens. Tween Flowers, an applique design from Molly Mine, is perfect for the mod squad.

Coordinating linework can be used to quilt alternating companion blocks, too.

Embroider and quilt the blocks in the hoop, then sew blocks together and bind for a heartfelt quilt that can make all the difference in the world.
