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.

And if you need help with the BOM, you can visit the FORUM where Barbara Black will answer your questions (it's also a great place to see other people's progress).

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

If you are interested in purchasing a kit or supplies for the quilt, they are available in The Quilt Show store.
