Welcome to my stop on the By Hand blog hop. By Hand was designed by my friend, Amy Friend for Contempo, a division of Benartex. When Amy asked me if I would make something with her new collection, I immediately knew I wanted to make a Patchwork Petals quilt. The organic nature of the shapes and irregularity of the prints pair perfectly with the petal shapes of my pattern. Plus, I love rainbow colors and her collection features pink, mango, golden yellow, grass green, teal and plum.
First step: print out the Patchwork Petals Coloring Sheets (included with the pattern!) and play with color and placement! These coloring sheets are so helpful for keeping organized while piecing. For the background, I used Color Weave White by Contempo Studio. It’s a great blender with a slight texture to it.
Patchwork Petals is a confident beginner/intermediate foundation paper piecing pattern. I felt it was fitting to use this technique while making something with Amy’s fabric since she is a fellow pattern designer who loves paper piecing too!
Now I need to decide how I want to quilt this Patchwork Petals sample!

Beautiful use of the fabric in the Petals pattern! I would use the fabric in a quilt of some sort, but not sure of which pattern I’d use.
I LOVE Amy’s new fabric collection!
I would make myself a quilt ! no gifting here!
I think these patterns would make an amazing Cathedral Window Quilt!
Sheri, what a great tribute to the Paper Piecing queen. Amy got me started with her Fat Quarter Gang Pillow 5 yrs -ish ago.
By Hand is simple, dreamy and I would want it in my bedroom. So a bedrunner is in order with that bundle. Thank you!
Love this modern, clean fabric line. I would make a simple baby quilt to show off the fabric.
I love you quilt! It’s so amazing! I probably would make something with flying geese…I’m a bit obsessed with them lately!
So pretty-I would make the pattern shown or the dragonfly pattern I purchased when you presented at our quilt guild.
Very pretty quilt! I like how each section is a little different. I would make a baby quilt.
I love to make quilts
I am new to paper piecing and quilting in general – so right now my projects tend to be pillows so I don’t feel overwhelmed! But my best friend has a baby on the way, I’ve been thinking that a baby quilt should be my next project. These bright colors would be perfect!
I have several patterns by Whole Circle Studio – I think I would use for those – the dragonfly would be perfect for sure!
I would make a baby quilt for my grandchild due next
This is gorgeous. Seeing as I bought the petals pattern this spring, I’d make this very quilt if I were lucky enough to win the vibrant fabric bundle.
i think a large size flying geese that lets the fabrics really show would be perfect for these fabrics.
Love your Petals – they look great! These fabrics would look fabulous as a miniquilt that I have been designing in my mind (time to commit to paper eh!!!)
I would make a quilt for sure. Yours is wonderful Jmikebalou(at) aol (dot) com
I love the colors and style of this fabric line. I am not sure exactly what I’d make yet, but I am thinking pillow covers maybe. That can really change up a room’s looks.
I would like to make a subtle “rainbow” quilt with the gorgeous bundle!
That Petal Quilt is very unique. I would like to try making it if I should win the giveaway. The colors are amazing!
A very beautiful Quilt! Thank You!
I really do like Amy’s new fabric line and I would use the fabric to make her Game Board pattern of hers or I think your pattern with the needles would be awesome! It needs to be a quilt
I would make a baby quilt with this fabric because it is neutral enough for either a boy or girl.
Honestly, if I win, I’ll donate the bundle to our Central Florida Modern Quilt Guild chapter, as a participation prize in the next challenge. Thanks for the chance to win! – FlourishingPalms
I would make a quilt using Anita’s Arrowhead pattern. It’s my new favorite.
Love your quilt! If I were to win the bundle, I think I would use it for a quilt, probably a log cabin or swoon style pattern. That is subject to change, though, given the hour of the day! 🙂
Beautiful quilt and beautiful fabrics.
Thank you for the chance. I would make a sampler quilt.
Very cool quilt. I love the fabrics, too. Thanks for sharing. I’d make a quilt of some sort with this fabric. firstname.lastname@example.org
Love the fabric. I would make a new quilt for one of my granddaughters. She is 13 and has outgrown the Cinderella story book quilt that I made for her when she was much younger.
Amazing work on your
quilt! Love the colors.
I would like to make
some bags and fabric

Hmmm, I wonder how this fabric would work with your Sew Speedy pattern? I’d like to try that.
Thanks for the opportunity to win.

Your petals quilt is so pretty – not a paper piecing girl, myself. I would love to make a quilt for my beautiful granddaughter. She loves a rainbow of color.
That’s a really hard question. I love so many of the colors in the group, and i use them in almost all my quilts….I would probably work them into my next big scrap quilt project. Thanks for the giveaway.

You made a lovely quilt in the beautiful fabric. I would definitely make a quilt…such beautiful colors to showcase!
I am designing a mini quilt for each month. I think the mini quilt for May will have various flowers on it. These fabrics would be perfect to make my mini quilt for May with.
Beautiful quilt! I would love to make a quilt for my mother in law!
I love that pattern in that fabric collection – a good fit. I’d probably use that fabric for a quilt for my middle son’s assistant teacher. He’ll be headed to kindergarten next year, so I want to thank her and the head teacher for everything they’ve done to help him learn and grow.
By Hand fabrics would be used to make a new set of placemats for my home, plus a gorgeous table runner to match! This collection is so lovely! duchick at gmail dot com
