When I first saw this free pattern offered by Tilda Fabrics, I feel completely in love with it. It was last year and I had started tracking my fabric and trying really hard to not purchase anything that was not necessary--trying to keep purchases to backgrounds and backings.
But the Embroidery Flower Quilt made me throw caution to the wind and order the kit. It checked all the boxes. Stunning design, gorgeous colors, and a line of solids I had not yet worked with--which seemed like reason enough.
Initially I had buyer's remorse. After all, I had SO many solids on my shelves that I'm sure I could easily have made it from stash. However...there are 46 different colors in this quilt, which made me think that the kit was worth every bit of money.
There are 2,268 2" squares in this quilt--1.5" finished. The pattern is broken up into nine blocks, 14 squares across and 18 rows down.
To keep from messing things up, I knew I had to come up with a plan to be super organized. Fortunately, there were some hints along the way. The first thing I did was order some fabric organizer cards from JitkaDesign on Etsy. We already had eight stackable organizers. I don't remember where we got them, and they have never been used for anything, but they were absolutely ideal for this project.
