If you enjoy applique flowers, you are going to enjoy making the Summer Flowers quilt that has eight different beautiful flowers to applique on a strip pieced background.
44" x 60"
Summer Flowers is a 44" x 60" inch quilt that combines string piecing and flower applique.
Yesterday was another beautiful day and I spent most of it power washing our deck. My plan is to actually get it sealed this summer. That was supposed to happen last year.....and didn't. I have the front all done and one-third of the huge deck facing the river.
After I finished that I remembered I wanted to take a couple of new photos of my Summer Flowers pattern before it gets shipped off Monday.
I was also busy getting a bunch of patterns ready to send off too. My Scattered quilt is also doing a little traveling.
I really enjoy making applique flowers out of batik fabrics. The fabrics are always so beautiful and vibrant.
There are 8 different full size flowers in my pattern. Here is a pink flower.
Here is another beautiful flower block.

The fabrics are batiks from Island Batik called the Flower Fields collection. I also used the leftover batik scraps to make a skinny tablerunner and have a tutorial for it.
I did raw-edge applique and actually did free-motion quilting for my applique. Aurifil thread is perfect for the applique.

I asked if others used placemats and it was interesting to see that about half of you do and the other half don't.
I have always had a oak table so......it is necessary to use placemats to protect the wood. That is why you will always see me making them.
