Floral Fabrics

Our lush garden of floral fabrics is in bloom year-round! If you visit our Florals Shop in Hamilton, Missouri (AKA Quilt Town USA), you can literally walk through an eternal garden for floral fabric by the yard, precuts, and quilt panels because the 2,500+ floral quilting fabrics in this store are always blooming! But you can also shop flower fabric by the yard and floral fabric precuts here in our online store. How convenient is that?!

Flowers possess distinct personalities, and floral fabric mirrors these traits. Just as some flowers boast grand, vibrant displays, flower fabrics can be characterized by bold patterns and lively colors. Conversely, other flower fabrics exhibit a more modest, understated demeanor, much like the subtle tones of certain blossoms that prefer to quietly blend into the garden. At Missouri Star, you will find a wide variety of styles, colors, and scales from your favorite quilt fabric designers and brands.

If you are looking for floral fabric patterns that have bold, bright colors and big blooms, take a look at Kaffe Fassett’s designs for Free Spirit Fabrics, which are always bursting with lush blooms in vibrant colors. Anna Maria Horner–also with Free Spirit Fabrics–is another designer who creates vibrant, vividly colored, floral print fabric and flower fabric. Jason Yenter puts a modern spin on the bold, bright flower fabric that he creates for In the Beginning Fabrics.

Do you love batiks? Many batik prints incorporate floral and horticulture themes, and they are printed in a wide range of colors–some bold, some pastel, some earthy. If that sounds appealing, you might search out the floral quilting fabric of Kathy Engle for Island Batiks. Lunn Studios for Robert Kaufman also specializes in batiks. For lovers of traditional floral fabrics and quilt patterns, Lori Holt fabric features bright, cheerful colors with ditzy flowers and other vintage-inspired designs. Lori’s reproduction fabric collections are available as flower fabric by the yard as well as floral Jelly Roll fabric, floral Layer Cake, floral Charm Pack, and also as a floral fat quarter bundle. You will also frequently find floral fabric panels for things like aprons and tea towels in Lori Holt fabric collections.

Another designer known for traditional flower fabric patterns is Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts for Andover Fabrics. Edyta’s designs use classic patterns and colors that will never go out of style, and they include floral fabric by the yard and flower fabric panels.

Primitive Gatherings for Moda Fabrics has floral fabric precuts and yardage in classic prints and the rich colors of the earth. You can also find delicately patterned calico prints in this line. Whether you choose a darker or lighter colorway, you will be pleased with the timeless, traditional tone these fabrics lend to your project.

Need some ideas for infusing your quilt projects with fresh floral fabrics?

Try using large-scale floral prints as the focal point of your quilt, showcasing them in the center of quilt blocks or as the main fabric in a quilt top.

Floral fabrics also make beautiful borders or bindings for your quilt! Choose a complementary floral print to frame your quilt top or finish off the edges.

Incorporate floral fabrics into pieced blocks to add interest and variation, or use flower fabrics as your background fabric to create contrast with other elements of your quilt, such as appliqué or pieced blocks. You can also experiment with fussy cutting floral fabrics to highlight specific elements of the pattern.

Last but certainly not least, floral fabrics can be used as your quilt backing to add a pop of color and pattern to the reverse side of your quilt. We even have extra wide floral fabric by the yard to use as your quilt backing!
