Spring Batik Appliqued Flowers

I was moving things around in my quilt studio the other day and came across a box…..a HUGE BOX of quilt blocks.

Can you guess how old these blocks are???

There are all kinds of sizes, colors, and fabrics. Most of them I had forgotten about and when I saw these four blocks I remembered that I had planned on writing up a pattern called Spring Batik Appliqued Flowers for this and…….for some reason I moved on to something new and forgot all about it.

I think this is when I knew that batiks were my favorite fabric for free motion applique.

The applique was all done on my vintage Singer sewing machine using a darning foot and I used embroidery thread.

Why did I never finish this quilt project? Do you have projects like this that you haven’t finished?

Applique Flower Blocks

I stuck the blocks up on my design wall and kind of liked this design.

Then I decided to add a narrow sash of a dark green batik. I’ll also use this same batik for my binding. I am going to work on this and hopefully sometime this month I’ll share it with you.

Were you wondering how old the blocks were??? Well, I found my blog post for the Flowers with Dots and a Lil’ Twister wall hanging from……2012!

It is definitely time to finish this!

Great deals for you!

    Applique brings another dimension to a project. Thanks, Connie, for sharing this “oldie but a goodie”. The colourful flowers compliment the subdued background perfectly.

  4. great blocks, don’t remember them at all, do remember some other flowers on a beige scrappy background, but not these!

  5. Ooh I really like those blocks and especially love the little one on the hanger near the river. Very nice. I think those were before my time as I’ve never seen them before.

    1. Thanks Miriam, some things never seem to go out of style 🙂

  7. I am always shocked at the amount of time when I look back at my UFOs too. I loved the flowers “back then” and still like them now!

    1. Thanks Mary, I think many of us have more UFOs than we realize!
