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:

So much of the year is void of color, unless you prefer white and browns, so why not add more color indoors, with a quilt. If one can't have flowers in the garden; year round, then perhaps making some delightfully colorful quilts depicting flowers would be fun. This quilt can be hung either way; and will add a nice splash of color wherever it is showcased.

If you don't want to make the mitered corners on the outer border, you can continue the method from the two inner borders with the small square at the corners.

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.

About the designer

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 ...
