Grand Floral Parade
Topic: Quilting

Some quilts I absolutely fall in love with before I even start stitching on them. That was the case with this one - just because the fabric was so yummy!

I bought a wide stripe black floral from the bargain bin and realized that at home I already had a black with little rosebuds that would look great combined with it. Once I found a pattern I liked, I chose the yellow, green and coral in the florals and in my stash. I added in a white with tiny dots in yellow and coral for the background.

Before I even started sewing this, I realized I had enough of the floral, yellow and green as well as the rosebuds and big florals to make another quilt and cut this one to sew up (showed back on August 14, 2016):


So, I got sidetracked and made several other quilts along the way but I finally got around to finishing up this originally cut one!

You'd hardly know they were the same fabrics, would you?


The coral and white really changes the feel of it.

In the original wide stripe fabric there was a funky separating stripe running lengthwise. I cut that 2 1/4 inches wide and used it for the binding.


For the first time, I bound from back to front so I could topstitch the binding. This left the back binding with a narrow black stripe that helps separate it from the large orange polkadot backing.

I call this one Grand Floral Parade because the large blossoms remind me of the Rose Festival.
