2024 - Pick a Petal

2024 - Pick a Petal

The 2024 Block of the Month, Pick a Petal (approx 72" square), was created by quilt designer Jen Kingwell. She writes,

I felt incredibly honoured when The Quilt Show approached me to be their next designer and without hesitation, I accepted. Immediately, my mind was brimming with ideas of what to create and my thoughts consistently gravitated towards Spring.

I think Spring is my favourite season.

After the grey days of winter, I get excited for the crisp mornings that shimmer with sunlight & hint at the warmth of Summer fast approaching. My garden begins to explode with vibrant colours and as I watch the butterflies and bees dance among the blooms, I can't help but feel my heart stir with joy and hope.

When The Quilt Show invited me to collaborate, I knew I wanted to capture the essence of Spring by weaving together the beauty and colour that this season brings to my world.

Using a mix of hand piecing, needle-turn appliqué and a range of stitch techniques, I began my journey to create Pick A Petal.

I love the way combining these techniques creates layers of detail and interest to a project. I embellished the appliqué borders with butterflies, flowers, and fruits to further evoke the spirit of spring.

I’m known as a scrap quilter and so I knew I wanted this design to reflect this: The colour palette is bright and fun mixing a range of prints.

I hope you enjoy this journey with me as much as I enjoyed the process of creating this design.

The Pick a Petal kit was won by Susan M. from Ontario Canada. Congratulations Susan!

Month 2 brings the first of our pieced border blocks. This block is a fun interpretation of a classic nine-patch, set against a curve.

This month there are more curves. This is another pieced block that you will alternate with your blocks from Month 2. You don’t have to alternate them, of course – You’re welcome to put them in any order you want, maybe some borders are one block, and some are the other? Maybe your first row of pieced borders are month one, and some are the other? It’s up to you, but keep in mind the instructions are written to create the quilt as Jen did.
