Pattern Description:

Lush, magnificent blooms overflow a curving vase in this over the top lap quilt. The leaves of the flowers are over a foot long, the largest bloom is the size of a pizza pan. The colors explode with life and vitality. Lush Flowers is a rag quilt designed to commemorate the traditional flower basket quilts of the past with a sizzling new energy of modern quilt making. It is fun, fast and easy to sew, with rag clipped edges to speed the assembly. By using free-motion machine sewing the quilt is quilted and the appliques applied at the same time. Come, enjoy a bouquet of your own!
