Quilt Pattern

Bonus Bouquet {Pattern Release}

Behind the scenes, I’m working on the pattern for my next quilt along. My Quilting Jetgirl Patrons have insight and details on the pattern, so if you can’t wait to get the details later this year, I hope you’ll consider joining us on Patreon. Because the 2025 quilt along won’t be released until late in the year, I dusted off an old bonus quilt and have turned it into a stand alone PDF for those who might be interested.

Today, I’m really pleased to offer the Bonus Bouquet digital quilt pattern!

Bonus Bouquet

I created Bonus Bouquet as a “bonus quilt” companion to the Pistils & Pollen quilt. The full standalone pattern for Bonus Bouquet contains yardage and cutting instructions for all the pieces, meaning that it does not rely on first making Pistils & Pollen to have left over scraps.

Fabrics & Materials

The cover quilt was made using Kona Cotton in Coal (Background) along with prints from Pat Sloan’s Morrison Park fabric line.

One of my favorite aspects of making the quilt was creating a scrappy binding. If making a scrappy binding interests you, I created a tips for planning / making scrappy binding post.

Quilting

I used 50wt Aurifil 2630 (Dark Pewter) to piece and free motion quilt a stipple across the entire quilt. While the thread blends into the Kona Cotton Coal background perfectly, it’s honestly harder to see against the brighter prints than you might think. To help you audition fabrics and quilting motifs, the Bonus Bouquet pattern contains a coloring page.
