How to Make a Fat Quarter Bouquet
I made this super-easy bouquet out of fat quarters for my booth at Quilt Market and it was a huge hit! If you're looking for a quick project with a lot of impact here's how to do it:
- fat quarters (I used all 16 prints from the "sundborn garden" by Hemma Design fabric collection for Red Rooster Fabrics)
- floral wire ( I used a raffia covered wire, but you can use any style you wish) cut into approximately 20'' lengths
- wire cutter
Step 1. Fold each fat quarter lengthwise with the raw edges to the center.
Step 2. Fold in half again with the edges slightly uneven and the raw edges to the inside.
Step 3. Bunch together the fabric with the raw edges to the inside.
Step 4. Wrap one end of the floral wire tightly around the fabric a couple of times. Bend the wire to make a stem.
Step 5. Bend the end of the stem into a loop to your desired length.
Step 6. Pull the fabric folds apart to shape the flower.
Step 7. Arrange fat quarter flowers in a vase.
