Scroll Flower #2




Amy's Free Motion Quilting Adventures featured a new pattern this week.  It's similar to last week's Scroll Flower #1 but it is larger with more echoing surrounding the center scroll.

I really liked this one! I felt I could get a larger area covered. I still feel my stems are a little too long but they looked better since the flower was larger.  I have a quilt in mind that I think this would make a great edge to edge design. I actually varied the sizes of the flowers to see how a smaller flower would fit in. I really liked the results!


It makes a really interesting texture. Thanks, Amy! I'll be linking over at Amy's blog. It's so fun to try new patterns but it's much more fun when other quilters share their results! Head on over to Amy's blog and check it out!!

  2. The extra round of petals really changes the look doesn't it - it looks great :-) Good that you have a quilt to do this on, that will be great practise!!
