THE FLOWER POT QUILT

I have taken a good part of this week to complete my Flower Pot blocks.  This project has been hanging around for a good deal of time, as I started it in November of 2019.

This is the original pattern, but due to its size it is just too big for my purpose.The only four blocks I planned on doing are done at last.  Now the pattern has additional blocks for the top and bottom and a border as well.  I do not plan on adding them.  The quilt is designed for a wall in my dining room and it would be way too large to fit on it.

I often decide to make changes to patterns and this one was no different.  The pieced lattice should have been 2 inch finished squares.  They just didn't seem to make a statement so I increased them to 3 inches and left out the background piece between those two bottom pieced rows.

Now just to add 3 inch blocks down the sides of this second center block, sew the two together, and add the two long panels on each side.  Once quilted I will be binding it with the a bright orange print that was used in the top flower on the bottom block above.  

While all the photos of the project and sewing going on Zoey our Yorkshire Terrier found the entire process disturbed her afternoon nap, thus the rather bothered look.

  15. I, too, adjust patterns to fit in my space I have for quilts. Once I took a pattern I really liked and made it half size. Yours is lovely. The background is stunning . It makes the blocks really stand out.
