Delectable Flowers Quilt

Delectable Flowers - Cover Image_72dpi

Hi, I’m Cathy from aquiltingchick.blogspot.com and I’m excited to share this pattern today.  For this project, I’m using “Hi-De-Ho” by Me and My Sister Designs. I’ve always loved the look of the delectable mountain block but really didn’t like the limits of the oblong design.  I trimmed it up and added corner squares, played with the layout a bit, and came up with wonderful pattern!  It will be a perfect quilt for Spring or for any little girls room.  This is a fat quarter and layer cake friendly quilt pattern. You can get the PDF version at the end of this post. Let’s get started!

This quilt finishes at 75″ x 90″.

    I bought yards of different fabrics that have raspberry, green, and lavender in common. I’ve been trying to find a way to use them that isn’t the typical 4 square, 9 square, or strips patterns. This will be perfect. Thank you for the great instructions

    I just finish my first Delectable Mountain Quilt using this technique and I loved it. I’m ready to start a new one, it will be fun. I can even use the same fabrics because I didn’t use precuts for the first one and have a ton of 8 1/2″ strips. I will only have to change the measurements a little and there we go. Thanks for the pattern.

  13. Beverly Collins says:
