Conservatory – Modern Houses Quilt + Tutorial!

We are super excited to share a quilt with you today made with fabric from the beautiful new Conservatory collection designed by Jill Finley!

I found this fun, easy, and FREE TUTORIAL from In Color Order for the House Quilt Block, and knew immediately it would be the perfect block to play with for this fabric line.

Conservatory is a bright, botanical, greenhouse themed collection, pairing blueprints with happy florals in lively shades of blue, yellow, green, pink, and red.

The tossed Conservatory and White Blueprint fabrics are a fabulous low-volume design. These, along with the other Blueprint fabrics have an architectural feel to them, which ties in perfectly with the house blocks in this quilt.

I love all these houses in a row! These are super easy quilt blocks to make. You can easily have a nice large stack whipped up in a morning.

I quilted this on my home machine with a simple all-over stipple design. This is a great design to try out if you are new to quilting on your home machine. Some machines struggle with tension on the curves, while others do just fine. If yours can handle the curvy lines, you’ll love this easy quilting design.

I used the Dark Blue Conservatory Blueprint fabric for the quilt back and binding. I love how the Blueprint design on the quilt back echoes the overall house theme on the quilt top.

I made 49 total house blocks – 7 across and 7 down. I added a 2″ border in the Red Conservatory Stripes fabric, and a You can find the FREE Modern House Tutotiral HERE courtesy of In Color Order.
