About this Quilt


This lovely queen-size bed quilt is made with pre-cut 2½” strips. Add a sprinkling of floral prints, and spring will never be too far away! Quick Triangle-Squares and simple Stitch-and-Flip piecing will help speed you through the block assembly.

The greens and lavenders in this quilt remind designer Mimi Hollenbaugh of an English country garden. She hopes it will make her guests feel like they are staying in an English bed and breakfast when they visit her home.

Mimi Hollenbaugh’s first love is applique, but she is drawn to many forms of quilting and needlework. Mimi has designed quilts for Makower Fabrics, and has co-authored and published a book of children’s quilts in the UK. She currently resides in Colorado.

Designer Pat Syta, along with some friends, started Parker Piecekeepers Quilt guild in Parker, Colorado, became director of Quilt Colorado in 2012, and Program Chair of Arapahoe County Quilters. She has also authored two quilting books.
