My Mum’s Garden Quilt Blocks
10.1.2018

I wanted to share a couple of blocks from a quilt I am making using our new collection, Mum’s Garden! I’ve been sewing my way through the blocks in the Ultimate Quilt Block Collection  by Lynne GoldsworthyI decided to start with the first blocks in the book and then work my way through in order.

Each block has two versions, the original and a remix of the same block. The first block is called Floor Tiles.  I chose to work with Mums Delight II (I love this focal and was excited to fussy cut the flowers for my block’s center), Embellished Gingham, and Beatrix II. I already have a large amount of white on white fabric in my stash so that’s what I decided to use for all my backgrounds.

The pattern called for slightly oversized half-square triangle blocks, which meant I got to use one of my favorite tools, the Bloc-Loc Ruler to trim them down. And here is my completed block…

For the remix of the block, the center layout has been changed to make a square on point in the center. For this block, I chose to work with Stipple, Elizabeth II, Houndstooth, and a discontinued white on white print from my stash.

Because I want the look of a sampler quilt when completed, I’ll be using prints from Mum’s Garden for my entire project. I can’t wait to get started on the next section which is all about paper piecing! Stay tuned for more posts as I sew my way through the blocks in the book.

    I bought the floral fabric and now I think the other 2 fabrics in the first block will have to be bought too. Love the fussy cutting!
