New pattern: Flower Tile, a charm pack quilt

Since ringing in the new year, I've introduced you to four new Carried Away Quilting patterns, and today we have number five: Flower Tile. This one might be my favorite.



Flower Tile is inspired by the delicate symmetry found on beautiful painted floor tiles in historic homes. Thin sashing mimics crisp grout lines, while a repeated pattern of softly colored prints creates a lovely cohesive effect. It’s the perfect pattern to show off your favorite charm pack


This quilt finishes at 44 1/2" square and lends itself to many different fabric styles and colorways. Sew up Flower Tile and you will have a beautiful wall hanging, table topper, or even a child's quilt! 



My sample quilt features Strawberry Fields Revisited by Fig Tree & Company for Moda, and the soft and swirly machine quilting was done by my friend Barb at Quilts on Broadway in Foley, MN. Those of you who have followed my blog can probably understand why this new pattern is my favorite. It just feels like home to me!



Here are the material requirements for Flower Tile:

(1) charm pack, or (27) 5” squares
Green................................ 1/3 yard
White................................ 1 1/8 yards
Inner Border...................... 1/4 yard
Outer Border...................... 2/3 yard
Backing............................. 3 yards
Binding............................. 1/2 yard


If you are interested in purchasing Flower Tile, please visit your local quilt shop or one of my blog sponsors who are carrying the patterns. You can also purchase paper or electronic patterns on my Etsy Shop or Craftsy Pattern Shop. Quilt shop owners: wholesale information is available here

Don't forget to tag me on Instagram or Facebook if you make one of my patterns. Some of you have been emailing me photos of your finished projects, and I love that.  It truly makes my day when I see what you've done with a Carried Away Quilting pattern!

Thank you, quilting friends, for your ongoing support and encouragement!

  1. Your patterns are always spot on. They don't look intimidating at all. Boy am I looking forward to retirement when my kids are done with school and I have lots of time on my hands. Hurry up 2024!! *insert clapping hands here*
