Pattern Details

Going on another quest... to use up more of my stash fabrics, I discovered how much fun it was to make stunning strip-pieced applique. Being passionate about machine fused applique, I wanted to incorporate this idea into my own designs. So here is my first design: PLAYFUL TULIPS to showcase some bright and colorful pieced-fabric appliques. It's such a great way to bring renewed interest in your own stash fabrics. Flowers bring us so much cheer; and who doesn't love the TULIP for it brings to us the promise that spring will soon be here again! Peeking out from under the snow, it truly is a delightful sight! So whether spring is soon to appear in your part of the world, or it still feels like a distant memory; this may be the perfect project to make to brighten your home, or to make as a gift -- to bring cheer to someone you love. I generally use darker colors for background fabrics; however, this one may be the exception because I wanted to contrast this changeover in seasons, with how it looks in real life. Here the snow is represented in white; and the colorful bulbs that burst forth with enthusiasm; are showcased in bright colors using the pieced-fabric technique. Why not try this delightful table runner to celebrate the promise of spring, or to brighten up your living space - any time of year? This 8-page PDF pattern has colored illustrations, clear instructions, and full-sized templates for the applique process. Appliques are reversed and ready to trace onto the fusible web. Use my fabric choices as your guide and have fun with this project. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Some experience using a sewing machine with quilting stitches, knowledge of fusible applique, and using rotary cutting tools. If not, you can still learn by referring to quilting books that teach these methods. From the different applique techniques, I like this one the best -- and it is the easiest to do. SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS Quilt size: approximately: 15" x 45"

Recommended with this pattern

  • Fusible web: 12" x 17" piece
  • Blocks and Borders: 3/4 yard (white)
  • Applique Designs -- using 1-1/4" wide strips (fabric scraps)

Sewing began my 'adventure with fabric' in seventh grade, from making my own clothes, to now having a passion for quilting. I love the creative process and completion of each project is more important than striving for perfection. Presently, I like to blend applique with scrap quilting techniques and finishing my quilts with the quilt-as-you-go technique. After 14 years of quilting, I still haven't learned how to FMQ, but perhaps, it can till happen. When away from my sewing space, it's counted cross stitch and hand embroidery, I'll be working on. I love how creative this platform is; and still enjoy learning new things every year.
