Mary's Flower Pots

I should have been working on Mary's Castle quilt.  BUT, Mary shipped me another quilt and requested that I flip her old spot on the schedule for this quilt and her castle quilt would wait until the new spot.  Yep, I could do that!  I wish all requests were that easy!

So, instead of working on the castles, I got to work on flowers -- wild, crazy, beyond beautiful flowers.  The pattern is Flower Pots by Kim McLean.  If you're not familiar with her stuff, just google her name -- she does some interesting, funky, flowery patterns.  I've already been lucky enough to quilt several, but this is the first Flower Pots I have stitched on, and let me tell you, it was fun!

So here is Mary's quilt:

and some detail photos:

 and, the back -- this was some awesome backing fabric!

And, Mary was so excited to get her quilt she opened the box while in the post office.  Her email said that everyone was in awe and loved the quilt.  That's what I like to hear!


  1. Of course they were in awe! You have the patience of a saint. We all know how I love a crisp white background with bright colored applique so of course I love this quilt too!!

  2. It is absolutely stunning, I love brightly colored quilts, they make me happy.


  3. Oh, wow! You did a fantastic job, Karen. I've been thinking about those kinds of colors for a quilt for my next niece.


We love to hear your comments:
