Flower Garden by Kim McLean

I am about half finished with the last border  for my Flower Garden quilt so I thought It was time to start thinking about putting the center together.  The pattern calls for  the sashing to be made from one inch finished squares so I started cutting.  So far I have cut 1150 squares and I hope this will be enough. It seemed to take forever to cut these little squares since I didn’t want to cut too many from the same fabric.

Now I need to wash and square up the blocks.  I don’t usually pre wash my fabrics, too lazy, but on this one I probably should have with all these bright colors.  I am going to use lots of color catchers wish me luck.


  1. This is such a beautiful pattern. How do you wash your block prior to sewing into a quilt top? I have some blocks that need washed and worry that they will fray.

  2. It is going to be beautiful! Now that is a lot of tiny squares to cut. Did you use your AccuQuilt cutter by any chance?

  3. Gorgeous. I love Color Catchers! Good luck.
