Morris Garden Flimsy

I got an early start on my Friday Night Sew In and spent the day working on my Morris Garden quilt. It is finished! (Well, the flimsy is anyway; I'll obviously still need to quilt it once I get my long arm.) 

I gave up the idea of making all the corners match, this one is actually the best of the four. I decided done was better and right now I just don't have space to lay it out to carefully match the fabrics.

This is made from Jinny Beyer's free pattern, Midnight Garden. I used an old set of fabrics from 2012, called Morris Meadows, designed by Michele Hill.
The squares were all cut in kaleidoscopes. I layered four repeats of the rose fabric and then cut out all the pieces. I didn't fussy cut to get any special effects because I wasn't sure I had enough of the fabric.
I'm pretty happy with how this one turned out.
This also finished up my November One Monthly Goal.

  1. It's an amazing quilt. All of your points look so crisp and well matched. The corner looks wonderful. Matching 4 of them must have been a major challenge.

    1. I wanted to match them all, but I didn't have space to lay the quilt out and get a good layout so they don't all match. That photo was just the best one.

  8. You deserve many pats on the back for such a spectacular quilt top. I would have given up on matching corners also. I have one scrap quilt I gave up trying to match and whacked the excess off to fit. I imagine quilters of the future saying -- hum this quilter must have been having issues trying to match so she took the expedient way out! It's all good.
