Wall Hanging

Skill Level:

little skill level requirement Novice

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • You should already know how to use a sewing machine and some of the fancier stitches. Preferable, you would also have knowledge of fusible applique and cutting out fabrics using rotary cutting tools. If not, you can still learn by referring to quilting books that teach these methods.
  • Machine fused applique is the easiest applique method. So don't feel afraid to give this method a try; if you haven't already done so before.

Pattern Description:

Still waiting for spring... why not create a colorful batch of tulips to hang on your wall; while you wait for them to show up in your garden or flower beds!

Let your fabric stash decide how many colors to choose! These flowers can remind us that winter will soon be past. Enjoy sewing spring up early!

This PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-size templates for the applique pieces that have already been reversed for the fusible applique process. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project.

Sizing / Finished Measurements:

  • Wall quilt - finished size: 34" x 25"


  • Yellow (striped) - 1/2 yd. (0.50 m) [plain & pieced blocks]
  • Yellow (print) - 1 yd. (1 m) [border]
  • Yellow (light) - 1/2 yd. (0.50 m) [appliqued blocks]

Sewing began my 'adventure with fabric' in seventh grade.
Fast forward about three decades, and it was machine applique that won my attention. Presently, I like to blend applique with scrap quilting techniques; and share my e-patterns here. I do still love new fabrics; however, am on a quest to turn my fabric stash into scrappy quilts. Visit me at my website or blog to find out more.
