Since Lori Holt’s new book came out we’ve been oohing and ahhing over this charming quilt! We are sew excited to host this sew along for Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet’s newest book, Prim & Proper.
This week we’re going to sew the Cross Stitch Block. We’re making our way through this beautiful quilt and sharing our progress along the way.
The Cross Stitch Block starts on page 20.
About the Quilt
Lori pulls beloved elements from vintage medallion applique and cross stitch to create an exquisite sampler quilt. The quilt features an elaborate vintage vase holding a sweet floral arrangement of flowers and leaves, surrounded by a colorful array of cross-stitches honoring a sister art. It’s sewn with traditional piecing techniques and it finishes at 63.5″ x 75.5″. There is no paper piecing or applique needed.
Fabric Requirements and Supplies
You will need your Prim & Proper book and some fabrics to make this quilt! You can find the fabric requirements and more details in our Kick-Off post. To create the cover quilt just like ours, pick up the Prim & Proper Quilt Kit and 2.25 yards of backing fabric.
