Holiday Flora

A fun + festive quilt pattern that sews up quickly and is beginner friendly.

A modern twist on a traditional Irish chain quilt. Holiday Flora Quilt utilizes strip piecing methods as well as big pieces to make this a super quick sew. The strip piecing makes matching up points a breeze!

Fun Fact: Holiday Flora was inspired by another tile floor I saw. It was a follow up to my number one seller, the Magnolia Quilt. Both quilts were inspired by tile work at the Magnolia Markets in Waco, Texas. They have the best tiled bathrooms!

I love that Holiday Flora can be interpreted multiple ways - each way creating a whole different feel.

Keep it festive for the holidays by using the traditional reds and greens in this 3-color option. Choosing contrasting colors really makes each feature pop in the final quilt design.

Want to keep it more traditional? Choose the 2-color option. I decided to try bold traditional by switching up to a dark back ground, and let me tell you - it's a stunner!

I just loved the way the white popped on the charcoal backing.

If you are feeling extra adventurous, make it scrappy! Grab your favorite jelly roll or 2.5in strips and get sewing!

Holiday Flora comes ready with instructions to fit your desired look. There are requirements + instructions for a 2 or 3 color fabric option. Each option also comes in either crib, twin or queen sizes!
