I am so happy to announce that the Blooming Boutique quilt pattern is now available. I’m so excited! This quilt is probably my favorite quilt of all time (don’t tell the others I said that). I don’t know if it's because of the pink background or the adorable flower blocks, but it makes me so happy every time I look at it. I’m sure it’s no secret that I love floral quilts. They just make me smile. I love being able to have all the big beautiful blooms in my home year round.

Note: You may notice that this pattern is a little bit more than normal. This is due to the amount of complexity to the pattern, the amount of blocks, and amount of pieces. This pattern is a sampler style quilt and it took a lot of time to design, develop, edit, and produce. This is the first time I have ever increased a pattern price since I started My Sew Quilty Life in 2020. I plan to increase prices on future complex patterns. Thank you for understanding.

About the Quilt:
I designed the Blooming Boutique quilt early last spring and it was originally scheduled to be released last summer, but I had to put it on hold while my family and I moved from Illinois to South Carolina. Do you remember that? It’s almost been a full year since we moved to South Carolina. I’m happy to report, I’m loving it! When I was scheduling out my quilt releases for the year, I was so delighted to offer it a prime springtime debut. Even though I was bummed it couldn’t be released last summer, I think spring was the better season for it. It’s funny how things work out that way.
This beautiful floral sampler-style quilt finishes at 80” x 80” and features six different types of flower blocks. It looks amazing in so many different color combinations. You can check out my testers' versions below. The quilt is traditionally machine-pieced with simple techniques and is perfect for the maker looking to advance their skills. It may look complicated, but it’s a quick make. I actually was able to make the entire quilt top in just one weekend. I labeled this pattern “advanced” because it does require a lot of cutting and it has a lot of different pieces to keep up with. If you're a confident beginner and can stay organized, you will have no problem making this beautiful quilt. I even created something to complement the pattern to help you stay organized.
Now introducing: “Stay Organized” Expansion Pack
There’s no denying that I love to work with a lot of pieces, which can become overwhelming when making my designs. I can’t help it–they just add the perfect amount of detail and make the finished quilt look so beautiful. I now have a solution to help you stay organized and enjoy making the Blooming Boutique quilt. Now introducing the Blooming Boutique “Stay Organized” Expansion Pack. This pack has color-coded piece markers, block labels, a coloring sheet, and a color convertor so you can easily keep track of which of your fabrics match the fabrics in the pattern.
I cut out all of the fabrics and separated them by color using the “Quick Cutting Guide” on pages 2 and 3 of the pattern. I laid things out on design boards. Then I used the diagrams found under each individual block to separate the pieces I needed for each block. It was a huge time saver! The “Stay Organized” Expansion pack is a downloadable PDF, which means you will be able to print it as many times as you wish to help you in your quilting process. Let me know how you like using this and I can make an Expansion Pack with every quilt pattern moving forward. Don’t forget to try out your favorite colors using the “coloring sheet.” I’m going to have some fun coloring up some new color schemes for my next quilt. I’m thinking of soft sage as my background.

Last year I released a needle minder with my Applique Garden pattern and it was a HUGE hit. I have had so many requests for another needle minder and I thought the Blooming Boutique quilt was the perfect quilt for that. Check out the limited edition needle minder by clicking the button below. If you want one, don't wait– I only have a limited quantity.
The fabric requirements can be found on the back cover of the pattern in the listing, but I will also list them here. I used Bella Solids by Moda Fabrics. If you are wanting to the same fabrics as my sample, the fabric SKU #'s are listed in the table below.
Pattern Release Team Quilts:
I’m not sure I would be able to do what I do without my amazing Pattern Release Team. They really go above and beyond to make their beautiful quilts, catch any errors, and help me share about the pattern upon its release. One of my favorite parts is getting to see what fabrics each of the testers come up with. Everyone's quilt is so different and shows off the quilts in different ways. I hope you find it helpful when deciding what fabrics to use. Help me celebrate them and show them some love.
A dark blue background allows the white and pink flowers to pop off the quilt. Janiel added a skinny white inner border to highlight the center medallion of the quilt. Janiel quilted her quilt using a beautiful floral pantograph.
Floral fabrics in a floral quilt? Yes, please! Jen highlighted both large- and small-scale florals for a quilt that blooms with color and pattern.
Woven fabrics add subtle texture to Marie-Claude’s version of Blooming Boutique. Earthy colors against a blue background make this quilt liveable in any space. Her quilt was quilted by: Shelly @matantequilting.
Va Va Voom (or should we say, bloom?) Saturated pinks, purples, and blues make Brandie’s quilt a total knockout!
Alice used chambrays for her version of Blooming Boutique, which gives the quilt the look (and feel) of a vintage quilt. Soft colors show off the delicate flowers.
