"QUILT AS YOU GO" Grandmother's Flower Garden Quilting Pattern

$2.95

Easy, quick and fun to make Grandmother’s Flower Garden “quilt as you go” PDF pattern. This pattern is all you need to create many designs from a simple coaster , pot holder, place mat, table runner all the way to any size quilt.

The name for the procedure is called folded hexagon Australian patchwork or framed hexagon. This is a great way to use individual flowers for the center of your project.

Each hexagon is pieced one at a time and has three basic pieces. Front, back and batting. You will sew all three together at once and when you are done, you have a completed “mini quilt”. When they are joined together as a hot pad, place mat or quilt, you are finished! A coaster is just one completed hexagon.

This project is so portable. I take my pieces around to ball games in a sewing tin pail.

I have made a pot holder and place mat for my sewing machine sample. I have used a zigzag stitch but I am sure there are other stitches that would be pretty too.

This is also a lovely hand piecing project. For the hand pieced sample, I have chosen a tea cup design and hand quilted around the outline of each cup.

This is also a cute pattern for an “I Spy” quilt.
