"Variations" combines applique and patchwork techniques in a bold, bright quilt that is perfect for showcasing your favorite things...sports teams, hobbies, even fairy princesses! Originally designed for a Florida Gator fan, this versatile quilt has been redesigned to work for just about any theme. Imagine it with Ninja Turtles, cars and trucks, even nursery rhymes or Bible verses! Super-sized text appliques are centered on a background of variegated blocks. 4" square blocks and motif blocks allow you to customize the quilt, and coordinating sashing frames everything beautifully. This 14 page pattern is easy to follow and comprehensive. It includes layout and instructions for the basic quilt and text appliques. Licensing restrictions prevent me from including official logo, mascot and cartoon character applique patterns, so I've posted a tutorial on my blog that walks you through creating your own appliques (see the link below).
