I This quilt is called Inside Outside Flower Garden because of the really fun technique used to make the flowers. Each of the flowers and their swirls are created by cutting the top layer or two of the quilt to reveal the underlying fabric. It’s like when you were a little kid and took lots of different colored crayons and covered a page with color. Then you took the black crayon and covered over the colors. The really fun part was scratching out the black to make a picture from the hidden colors underneath.

Now that we are grownups, we have a fancy name for this process, reverse applique, but the fun is the same Inside Outside Flower Garden Quilt uses 4 layers of fabric. You pin the layers together, mark the flower pattern, sew and then carefully cut the layers to make the flowers. This is a quilt as you go project so as you sew the flowers you create a beautiful outline of the flower on the back of the quilt.

The applique and the quilting are done at the same time. The binding is a shortcut method where the edges are sewn all around and then clipped to fringe.

Every step in this quilt was planned to create the most beautiful quilt possible in the most efficient way possible. There are numbered steps and photographs to guide you. The pattern pieces are full size designed to be printed from standard computer paper. There are 9 helpful photographs in this pattern.

Skill level: beginner
Completed size of quilt: approximately 58x52 inches (147cmx132cm)


9 fat quarters for the front of the quilt (a fat quarter is a 18x21 inch (46x53cm) piece of fabric)
9 fat quarters for the second layer of the quilt which will be the main flowers.
3 fabrics-- 1 ½ yards (1.37m) each in three different colors for the third layer and the back. I used flannel because I like the texture, and because it gives extra weight to the quilt since there is no batting layer. The fabric you choose will make the inside swirls of the flowers, in some flowers.
Darning foot or free motion foot accessory for your sewing machine (optional but very useful)
Pointy small scissors for careful detail cutting

Purchased this blanket for my friend, who is expecting a baby girl. It is adorable and very well made. Everything about working with this seller was great! She accomodated my request for customization, responded quickly to my inquiries, and even offered to hand-write a note to my friend. The cost was very reasonable and shipping was fast! Excellent experience :)
