Yesterday, we made the tulip blocks using the Drunkard’s Path method for our quilted wall hanging, and today we’re going to make the flower pots using templates and Northcott’s Artisan Spirit Shimmer Echoes collection.
Instructions for making the flower pots
From the gray fabric, cut four 4½” x 16½” rectangles. Set aside.
From each of the flower pot fabrics of brown and dark green, cut two 2½” x 8½” rectangles.
Using the flower pot templates, cut two pots from each of the dark green and orange fabrics, and cut eight side pieces from the gray fabric.
Sew the gray side pieces to each side of the pots, and press. Repeat for the three other blocks. Trim to an 8½” square.
Sew the colored top onto the flower pot base. Make four flower pots.
Sew a green and a brown flower pot together, side by side. Alternate blocks, and sew another set.
Sew the two gray 4½” x 16½” rectangles to the bottom of both sets of pots. Press. We’ll be using the remaining two 4½” x 16½” rectangles tomorrow.
Come back tomorrow as we put the finishing touches on our blooming tulip quilted wall hanging using Northcott’s Artisan Spirit Shimmer Echoes fabric.
