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. Beginning January 3, 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
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.
AccuQuilt Die Cutting
These are the Dies I plan to use when I make my new version of Blooming Wallflowers. Click each link to learn more about the Die from AccuQuilt.
I hope you’ll join me for a fun time sewing to ring in the new year! Be on the lookout for the complete quilt along schedule coming soon!
