Fat Quarter Style Birthday Celebration: Primrose Quilt

We love florals of any kind, that’s why we had to include this Primrose quilt pattern in our Fat Quarter Style book. The orginal quilt was created using a mix of Pedal Pushers and Fancy collection for Moda Fabrics. 

Primrose is Kimberly’s favorite quilt from the book so it’s no surprise that she wanted to sew another version of this adorable quilt. She Created a beautiful tablerunner using the Hazel collection by Cluck Cluck Sew. The light background gives the quilt such a fresh look.
