Portico Blooms 4 1/2″ Edge-to-Edge

(1 customer review)



2 Rows of 4 inch stitching make this pattern perfect for short-arm or domestic machines.  Isn’t it great that 2 little rows make a big design?

Portico Blooms is a stylized flower found in Mayan textile decoration, Mayan hieroglyphs, and also as painted architectural décor on Aztec porches.

While we imagine bougainvillea spilling over the porch roofs in Central America, the ancient artisans painted these blooms along the pillars of these very porches and in their architectural murals. Although the design is hundreds of years old it complements bright modern piecing.

    A nice design that is quick to quilt. A good choice for those who like open, not too dense quilting. Very “clean” look.
