The Lauren Quilt

Here is my latest quilt – the Lauren Quilt.  I helped my mother-in-law make it for my niece. I only had to buy the white background fabric, the rest was already in my stash.  The shoo-fly blocks are done with 30’s reproduction prints.

It is an original design based on a traditional block. The blocks are 9″ square, with partial blocks in the border. I designed it on Quiltography, a great app for designing quilts. I highly recommend it if you have an iPad or tablet. 


The blocks were quilted with free-motion flowers surrounded by stippling.   I quilted a chain in the chain blocks. 

Even the back was from my stash. I made 20″ squares and pieced the back. My kids think the back is just as good as the front. 


You can see the quilted flowers even better on the back.

  1. SO pretty! I love chains and I love shoo-flies, so this is the perfect combination. And I’ve pieced backs just like that before, including for grandson’s quilts. Littlest grandson just got his big-bed quilt, and I worry some day he’ll realize the older brothers have TWO quilts on each of theirs, while he does not (because his back is all one fabric, and theirs are pieced.) 🙂
