Hello, friends, and happy Wednesday! I’m super excited to share a fun new pattern with you today. My Bouquet Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt pattern has two different size options, and I love them both. While you can make a delightful lap-size quilt, there is also a wall-hanging or mini quilt option included. Both quilts are Layer Cake or scrap friendly, and one Layer Cake will make both projects. Additionally, I’ve filmed a video with a close up view along with lots of other Grandmother’s Flower Garden project ideas. (The small quilt is super quick to make–and you might even be able to get it finished up in time for holiday gifting. But either way, both are terrific projects to work on during the holidays).
Bouquet Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt
I used our Seashore Drive fabric collection for my mini version of this quilt. And I’m currently working on finishing up the blocks for the lap-size version. The lap version is a scrappy mix that will have fabrics from all of our collections to date. I love both versions and can’t wait to have the larger one finished up–my goal is to have all of the hexagons stitched this weekend and then get it to the quilter next week. Wish me luck! Find the new Bouquet Grandmother’s Flower Garden Quilt pattern in paper and PDF here (or click the button below).

The Wall Hanging or Mini version has a couple of options. Make it like the pattern cover for the smallest version, or add sashing like the lap version to make it a touch bigger as I did.

NOTE: To make the Mini Quilt as shown in my quilted version you’ll need to cut four sashing pieces as directed for the throw version.

You have impeccable timing! I have about 18 flowers finished and will be putting them in some kind of project. Your Seashore Drive fabrics are just beautiful and cannot wait for those to show up!

How lovely to open your blog and see your Grandmothers Flower Garden blocks….I’ve got nearly 70 made (a very convenient portable project as all are hand pieced). I intend to sew 4 different neutral fabrics together and center each block in the middle and do a different small floral print sashing around each one. Am hoping to have enough to make a new quilt for the guest room bed & have it finished by spring. My blocks are all very scrappy – I’ve been quilting 45+ years and quilting scrappy is my preferred way to go. Merry Christmas to you!
