Blooming Wallflowers Quilt Along Materials List and Cutting Tools

The best thing about blogging regularly is hosting quilt alongs once again. These are multi-week posts where I walk you through the entire process of making a quilt from start to finish. In, 2022 we will make my Blooming Wallflowers quilt using regular cutting, or AccuQuilt Dies – your choice!

This quilt is so fast and fun to make and it looks much harder than it actually is. I’m going to be making my version using my new Black, White & Bright fabric line from Benartex, but of course you can use any fabrics you wish to follow along. All you need is a copy of the Blooming Wallflowers quilt pattern.

I’ve made this quilt a couple of times before, but this time around I’m excited to use AccuQuilt Dies. The kits, pattern and quilt along videos will all show how to make it with traditional cutting OR die-cutting.

I talked more about the upcoming Quilt Along on my latest Live Chat. Click here or the image below to watch.

Here are the rest of the details with links on where you can get supplies to make this quilt.

Fabric Requirements for “Scrappy” Blooming Wallflowers Quilt

Blooming Wallflowers Pattern Cover

6 Fat Quarters (18″ x 21″) of Saturated Colors for the Flowers
6 Fat Eighths (9″ x 21″) of Light/Low Volume Prints for the Flower Shadows
6 Fat Eighths (9″ x 21″) of Black & White Prints for the Flower Shadows
4 1/4 yds of Contrasting Fabric for Background & Binding

Traditional Rotary Cutting

To cut this quilt the traditional way, I highly recommend the Tri/Recs ruler set. It will cut blocks up to 6″ finished which is what is shown on the pattern cover.

    I have the 9 inch block and companion accuquilt set. And a few speciality dies. Would I need any other dies for this quilt ? And would this size make a queen size?
    I have your 20 FQ bundle will this be enough fabric ?

      The Queen size version makes 8″ finished blocks, but you could definitely make them larger at 9″. Fat Quarters won’t work for the larger block sizes because you’ll lose too much fabric per strip. However it’s enough for the smaller sizes. The other dies needed are for the squares and the setting triangles around the edges. Those are all based on the finished block size. However, you could start with the fat quarter bundle and then substitute with fabrics from your stash, or go really scrappy with it in each block.
