Mother of the Bride

Updated: Jun 23, 2021

As the floral season come to an end, I couldn’t help but plant one last Super Bloom seed, low and behold, another quilt has blossomed!

Over the last few weeks, I’ve been helping one of my dearest friends create a quilt for her daughter’s wedding today. This is the quilt we came up with – we have named it Mother of the Bride” and the pattern is available here.

We wanted to sew something special for this amazing girl – she is a nurse on the frontlines working endlessly taking care of Covid patients. The wedding has been moved online, and I’m so looking forward to being able to “ZOOM” in and celebrate with her on this magical day.

I love this design, each block is sew simple, yet sew sweet.

To begin, you will need 5 strips in a variety of colors, 1 center square, a background rectangles, and squares. For background fabric, I suggest using 9057-L or 9556-L (you’ll need at least 3-1/2 yards).

I also grabbed my favorite Aurifil thread 2310, Creative Grids Ruler, and Olfa Rotary.

We start by sewing strip sets. It is very important to follow the directions in the pattern for pressing for each strip set.

Now lets cut each strip set into smaller square sets.

You should be able to get 4 square sets out of each strip set.

Now arrange the square sets shown above with 1 background square and 2 rectangles. This will make one corner of the block.

Sew as shown above. Your seams should be locking.

Add the background square and each rectangle to the units.

Sew together and trim if necessary.

(After finishing my first corner unit, I have noticed how I need to adjust my quarter inch seam allowance a bit to make this block perfect) Repeat above steps three more times to complete all 4 corners of the block.

Now arrange the four corners with four square sets around your center square.

Sew into rows...

...then sew each row together. Press, and trim.

Your seams will look more and more wonderful with each and every additional block. You will also get a chance to play with a variety of color combinations using the Super Bloom Collection.

With a little patience and the templates from our pattern, you will be able to compliment the blocks with one of my favorite sashing designs. You are going to have one beautiful, unique quilt!

Happy Quilting! Edyta
