Hey ya’ll!

Today on the blog, I am showing my new quilt design, “Petal Pushers.”

Ya know I just love this quilter’s classic orange peel/petal shape!!  I wish I could say I’d been planning it, but it’s just not that complicated.  It just happened as I was playing with extra fused petals I had, determined to use up some fabric yardage this summer!!  Ya feel me there, don’tcha?!!!  HA!  Yes.  The never ending saga for a quilter, right?!

So enter this sweet little quilt… it’s just  simply scrappy, chock full of color on a multitude of many different muted white, gray and neutral printed backgrounds… it’s plain old fashioned fun and very happy!  This measures to about 48″ x 56″ but oh my.  I can see a bigger quilt of course… easily done… and turn the petals into the corner for a daisy shape.  And I can’t wait to turn this pattern into a bed runner for our bedroom that will feature a more creamy warm-toned, natural background with a different color palette altogether.  Love the possibilities ~ as always!

And need I say… use those fabulous black flowers I’ve fused and cut, and simple quilting, and it’s a done deal!!  Fast and easy. Fun and Scrappy.  It doesn’t get a whole lot better than that.  Can’t wait to show you some other ideas…

I just need more time!  LOL.

{Preachin’ to the choir, aren’t I?!}

AND here’s the great news… In case you may be interested, I have made up cute KITS of this quilt, featured in my Etsy store, where you can 30% off, with the coupon code SEPT30.  {so sorry if the prior coupon code wasn’t working} I’ve done most of the work for you in this kit ~  {I’d call it fun actually} ~ all the blocks are pre-cut, and the petals too ~ scrappy, fused and it’s basically Peel n’ Stick!! There’s  84 of those pretty petals,  plus a few extras for good measure!!  Woot Woot!  Kit includes the pattern, {which also has the petal shape included for you to trace yourself} and all the black and white flowers which you will have fun fusing and cutting yourself!  And the other good news?

It’s Border Collie Approved!!  LOL What more can you ask for?!  I hope you like it!

    1. Hello, I am wondering if the black flowers are” fussy cut” and are all (petals and flowers) pieces turned under or left raw.

        Hi Karen, the black flowers are first fused to Steam a Seam Lite 2, and then fussy cut. The Steam A Seam stabilizes the fabric so it’s a quick and easy cut. The petals are also fused to Steam a Seam, and cut with the orange peel die from accuquilt, seven at a time, making it a fast and easy process to accumulate many petals with each cut; they are all raw edge applique. And you don’t have to have an accuquilt die; you can also cut and trace as the pattern contains the shape, as well as many tips and instructions. It’s a fast and fun one to use up scraps too.
