FREE Tutorial - Quilting Without the Book by Nicole Maroon

Have you ever tried moving out of your comfort zone and just pioneering your own techniques to reproduce a design that inspires you?  Nicole Maroon of The Girl Who Quilts did exactly that for this quilt, and the tutorial she has created for this project is excellent (all of her projects are wonderful; be sure to check out Nicole's Tutorials page!).  More from Nicole:

"I'm in serious home decorator mode right now. Good thing my favorite LQS had some fun sales right before the holidays! I bought several prints from Lila Tueller's Santorini line and also Pamela Mostek's Piccadilly line and decided they would go in our guest room. I wanted a fun, girly room-but I didn't want to actually have to look at it every day. So voila, my guest room idea is born!

"While I was at the quilt shop, I browsed around for a pattern idea. I had no plan in mind when I started buying the fabric, so I bought 3/4 yard cuts. I ended up with 11 prints, and that's when I found the pattern (minus the flower applique). It had all of the right components:
  • large blocks to showcase the huge florals
  • simple piecing
  • non-traditional design
"The only problem was that the pattern came in a book, and I did not need any more quilt books in my house! Plus it was pieced in a very time-consuming method. So I decided to take the design idea and make my own technique. :)"

Finished Size: 92" x 92" (234cm x 234cm)
