Basic Skills Necessary:

  • sewing an accurate 1/4" seam allowance
  • fusible applique
  • basic quilt making skills

Pattern Description:

Forget April showers- it's April flowers! Brighten up a rainy day with these easy, fusible tulips. The two color, quick pieced background blocks make for a dramatic presentation!

Instant spring!

We appliqud the tulips using the fusible appliqu method. For fusible web, there are lots of great products out there.

This pattern looks great all on its own, but it goes together so quickly you might have time for a little embellishment. You could use the blanket stitch to outline the tulips, or fancy stitches along the edges, or add some beads for a spring sparkle! On the mini quilt I added some beads along the leaves and it looked great!

Though you can just hang them without a hanger, the banner and mini quilt are made to fit Ackfeld Manufacturing's 12? quilt hangers. The mini trio fits Ackfeld's tri-stand table top holder.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Banner: 12? x 28?
  • Mini quilt: 12? square
  • Trio: 6?


  • See pattern for yardage amounts

You Will Also Need:

  • fusible web- such as Steam a Seam 2 or Wonder Under
