All you need to get started is a copy of the quilt pattern and a few supplies listed below:
(1) Blooming Wallflowers Quilt Pattern
- Click here to get the print version of Blooming Wallflowers quilt pattern
- Click here to get the PDF version of Blooming Wallflowers quilt pattern
(2) Fabric Needs – see materials list in the image below. I will be making the throw size.
(3) A set of Tri Recs rulers for the Crib or Throw Size.
Please get these exact tools. Anything else won’t be the correct angle for cutting. Tri Recs makes blocks up to 6″ finished. For the Queen size quilt, you will need the Creative Grids Triangle Squared AND Perfect Rectangle rulers that make up to 9″ finished size blocks.
If you don’t have access to these rulers, you can use the full-size templates included in the quilt pattern.
(4) Batting for your quilt size
(5) Basic rotary cutting equipment – mat and rulers, and cutter with new sharp blade.
(6) Basting supplies – either safety pins or 505 basting spray. (I will spray baste)
(7) A “can-do” attitude and willingness to share – this is going to be fun!!

Sharing is Caring
As you are gathering your supplies and getting ready to start, please share pics of the fabrics you’ll use – I’d love to see! Also, anytime during the quilt along, I encourage you to share your progress in any of these ways:
- On Your own blog – share links in the comments section of any of the QAL posts
- On Instagram – use hashtag #bloomingwallflowersquilt so others can see your progress
- In my Christa Quilts Facebook group – this is also a great place to ask questions and interact with other quilt along participants.
I’m so excited to get started!! Who’s with me?? As always, it’s totally OK to follow along virtually, or save the blog posts for later and make this quilt any time, on YOUR schedule.
