Folk Blooms Quilt Pattern by Pen and Paper Patterns - Sewfinity.com

Why We Like It

Pen + Paper Patterns is known for cute block-based quilt patterns, and Folk Blooms is no exception. Columns of flowers in bloom - ridiculously cute! 

Choose to use either yardage or fat quarters: either version is equally adorbs. If you make the fat quarter version, each FQ is cut exactly the same, so it's easy to cut and it's fun to mix and match colors for so many fun color combinations. And since it's block-based, it's fun to sew in a group.

The fabric requirements are simple, and it looks great in our solids!

    Tips + Tutorials

    • The pattern features instructions with diagrams throughout, a really helpful fat quarter cutting diagram, a coloring page, and cut-out tags to keep fabric organized.
    • If making the FQ version, you'll have one block leftover. You could piece it into the quilt back, or make an 18" pillow cover using our free pattern: Patchwork Pillow Cover.
    • Sew Along: Lindsey's Folk Blooms Quilt Along, an 8-week sewalong Aug 27 - Oct 22, 2021. Sewfinity is a sponsor!

    Inspiration + Ideas

    Match-making our Kona Cotton Solids to Folk Blooms was really fun and it was so inspiring to see so many color combos come to life. Get inspired by these digital mockups!

    IF USING FAT QUARTERS:

    You'll need 13 fat quarters plus 3 yards for background/binding. You'll have a block leftover - perfect for a pillow!
