I encourage you to give this quilt a try, it’s not difficult and an excellent skill builder.

BLUSHING PEONIES FABRIC COLLECTION
The blushing Peonies fabric line features peony buds, round and full, burst open to magnificent blooms, full of romance and beauty! Blushing, but certainly not bashful, these peonies bring spring color and splendor into your home. The pinks, corals, and greens of the garden mix with the calm soft grays of early morning dawn or evening dusk. Just as bold and glorious as nature intended, these peonies are large and lovely and add a dramatic presence in large blocks and in your sewing projects! The collection adds to the feeling of a romantic garden with floral sketches and cameo-like shapes.
UP SQUARE DOWN SQUARE PATTERN
I’ve made it easy for you to get started on this project. All you need is one or more of our pre-cut strip packs and your choice of 4 coordinating fabrics and you’re set to begin. The pattern gives you five quilt sizes, ranging from lap to king. Our throw sized sample only needs one strip pack, twin or queen would require 2 packs and king size needs 3 packs.
