Well known for her Celtic knotwork designs for applique, sashiko, embroidery and quilting, Scarlett also enjoys designing delightful scrap quilts based on traditional patterns. She brings a unique perspective to these redesigned classic patchwork patterns, keeping the vintage look but using easier techniques for the construction.
All of Scarlett's e-patterns contain clickable links to Galleries showing more samples of each design and pictures of completed projects made by quilters who have purchased her patterns. Links are also provided for you to buy specialty notions like bias bars, fusible bias tape makers, preprinted Celtic knot blocks for embroidery or sashiko, thimbles, needles and other specialty items.
This beautiful patchwork pattern has paper or foundation piecing templates for 3", 6" and 9" leaf blocks, which will make three sizes of quilts: 33" wallhanging, 66" lap throw or a 99" double/queen quilt.
It's very easy to paperpiece or foundation piece, although this design does depend on careful placement of fabrics - just follow the placement diagram and sew each block one at a time, placing them row by row, to create the desired design. The leaf blocks interlock, creating a tessellated pattern.
Change the design simply by placing fabrics in different patterns, like straight furrows or any style layout of your choice. Have a look at all the pictures to see what is possible!
A blank layout is included for experimenting with colorings. Adjust size and shape of design by adding more rows.
A leaf quilting design is included, Use it for hand or machine quilting, or embroider it as a decorative embellishment.
