Hello! I’m Alli Jensen, the quilt maker behind Woodberry Way, and today I’m happy to be sharing about Full Bloom.
I love quilts that feature pieced flowers, and this one was really fun to design. I wanted to make a single flower block with an outline that created an interesting secondary pattern.
Originally I had planned this quilt in a spunky, summery fabric line, but when I saw Lella Boutique’s “Olive’s Flower Market” for Moda and tried it out in EQ7, I liked it much more. That’s one of the many reasons I love EQ7- it helps me decide on a final look before cutting into precious fabric!
The colors are sophisticated and pretty, and I love the pop of black with the soft springy colors. I love all of Vanessa’s lines! I think Full Bloom would be gorgeous in her newest line “Sugar Pie” as well.
Thank you for visiting, I hope you have fun with this pattern. If you make a Full Bloom quilt, don’t forget to tag me on Instagram (@woodberry_way) so I can see! My blog is www.woodberryway.com and my pattern shop is www.woodberryway.bigcartel.com.
Thanks so much, Alli. If you’d like to make your own version of the Full Bloom lap quilt and don’t yet have a copy of the March/April 2017 issue of McCall’s Quilting, you can order print and digital versions in our online shop. The Full Bloom lap quilt pattern is also available separately as an instant digital download.
