Spring Petals Quilt Along Link Up

The Spring Petals Quilt Along link-up is finally here!  I’m so excited to see everyone’s finished project.  Edit 6/8/15:  Linky is now closed.

I want to remind everyone that I have some great prizes to motivate you to finish your table topper and link up.  The Fat Quarter Shop is giving away TWO $25 gift certificates.  I LOVE browsing their fabric selections, and it’s always fun to see what they’ve chosen for their precuts sale of the week and their 24-hour flash sale. 



I’m also adding a prize package of my own that consists of a pattern, two mini-charm packs, one charm pack and a few notions.

Link-up rules:

  • The link-up is open to anyone who has made a Spring Petals table topper using my tutorial.
  • It does NOT need to be quilted and bound; tops only will be fine.
  • You can link up more than one completed table topper, but not two pictures of the same project.
  • You don’t need to have a blog or website to enter the link-up.  However, I think your photo needs to have a URL code.  This is my first time hosting a linky party, so I’m learning how it’s done (along with many of you).  If you have a Flickr account, you can use it to generate a URL. Go here to see how to add images with Flickr.  If you don’t have Flickr, and you’re not able to upload an image, then please email a photo to me, julie at TheCraftyQuilter dot com, and I will add your image to the link-up.
  • The link-up will remain open until June 5, 2015.  Three winners will be drawn at random on June 7, 2015.  Winners announced here.
  • International entries are welcome.

So far, I’ve got two completed table toppers of my own, and I have two more that need to be quilted and bound.

I love my first one, made in all solids using Cirrus Solids from Cloud 9 Fabrics.  I’ve become obsessed with this line of fabrics.  They are a chambray-weight, yarn dyed, cross-weave fabric and so dreamy to work with.  I’m not getting paid to say that – they are just that awesome.

The backing material for this one is a fun yellow and white polka dot that accents the single, yellow circle in the front.  Plus, I love the way the black binding looks against it.

The second one I made has a touch of sweetness with the Pam Kitty Garden fabric I used.  This one really brightens up the table.

And the back of this table topper is pieced with left-overs of the same fabric.

So, get busy you guys!  You have almost a whole month to finish your table topper.  You can find all of the tutorials for this quilt-along at the Spring Petals QAL page.

Thanks for playing along with me!  If you have any questions, you can email me or leave a comment.  I’ll be in Austin, Texas this weekend visiting my daughter and her husband and my soon-to-be grandchild.  I will try to respond to your comments/questions as soon as possible.

  1. I really enjoyed making my version of this beautiful tutorial. It is really nice to have the link up and see how others put their own spin on it. Great job ladies.

  2. Everyone’s toppers are beautiful. I never could settle on just the right fabrics. But like all the other times, I’ll make this, just ‘later’!

  3. Sorry I didn’t get my binding on. Having issues with that! But I am a Determined Quilter so I will figure it out.

  4. Yeah! I completed my spring petals. I loved that I was able to complete the different steps of the tutorial. It proved to me that I still need to work on my techniques, but that was the whole purpose for me…learning to do things I had never done before. Thanks for giving me the opportunity to join the QAL. I look forward to new challenges.

  5. Can anyone help me add my flckr links please? I am sooo lost! I tried to follow the instructions on the link Jukie provided, but I can’t get a url to copy….not that I even know what that is! Ohhhh to be old……ha!

  6. This was a fun project and I learned to bind inside corners. It was a bit intimidating when I started but after having eight times to practice, it wasn’t bad at all.
    At first I couldn’t figure out how to upload my photo and even sent a note to you to upload for me. Today I was looking at your note again and realized that I had to be in the comments section to see the InLinkz area. I now have my project added to your site.

  7. I finished my Spring Petals T T! I love both of yours… but the Pam Kitty Garden fabrics steal my heart!! I love the scrappy back, too.
    Thanks for a beautiful pattern and tutorial, Julie! I am no longer afraid of an “unusual binding”!

    1. This has to be my favorite table topper of all times. Julie, i love your website and you really inspire me. Thanks for all the wonderful things that you post.

I love hearing from you! Thanks for leaving a comment!
