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.

Summer Flowers patterns

I really enjoy making applique flowers out of batik fabrics. The fabrics are always so beautiful and vibrant.

Creating the flower blocks

There are 8 different full size flowers in my pattern. Here is a pink flower.

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.

    What a lovely pattern! I love flower quilts–this one is great! I also love making placemats as gifts but don't use them much. I often fill plates for my husband and myself, and we eat in front of the tv–no seconds that way! LOL

  12. Connie, that is so pretty. I really like how you use string piecing to create the background block. It adds a lot to the look.

    I use the placemats because of our oak table too.
