Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

This pattern is for an art quilt that is a very fun twist on the American flag, done all in floral fabrics. With this pattern, you will create a one-of-a-kind flag quilt with floral stripes and a field of appliqued flowers. The flag's stripes are made using larger scale floral fabrics. And the field of flowers is created via a collage technique using colorful floral fabrics, fusible web and machine raw-edge applique. The directions here are for a decorative wall quilt that measures approximately 39" high by 60" wide. Please know that this pattern is instructions how to make a similar quilt/fabric collage. The look of the quilt will vary given the flower fabrics you already own or can obtain. This is not a kit nor a finished quilt, but a digital file (pdf) with instructions on how to make a quilt that looks like this one.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Approximately 39" high x 60" wide

Materials:

  • An assortment of floral fabrics -- some with large scale, whole flower heads (ranging in size from 1" - 5" in diameter for the field of flowers in the upper left) and between 1/8th yard and 3/8th yard of 13 different large-scale floral fabrics to use as the 13 stripes, some bleached white muslin, thread to blend with the floral fabrics, clear nylon thread for raw edge applique, about a yard of double-sided fusible web, batting, backing fabric and binding fabric for this approximately 39" x 60" fabric collage, sewing machine with zig zag stitch
