Sakura is Japanese for cherry blossom and refers to this quilt's tranquil pattern of drifting cherry petals. Fusible raw-edge applique makes the quilt top deceptively quick to put together. This charm-friendly pattern is perfect for showcasing an entire fabric collection.
Pattern includes instructions and a stitch guide for finishing appliques with embroidery stitches. Pattern also includes directions for creating a gradient effect as shown in the photos, as well as a bonus pattern for a 12" X 16" quilted pillow cover. Full size applique templates and suggestions for quilting are also included.
Quilt pictured features the Good Fortune collection by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics.
Trained as an art historian, my love for modern design and traditional craft techniques led me to the fields of quilt pattern and textile design. My husband and two young sons keep me happy, busy, and inspired.
