The fresh colors are perfect for spring. Or, choose your own color scheme for a quilt to display all year long. A plaid and a stripe add extra charm to small floral prints. This will be stunning in batiks, too, while taking on another personality.
While the pattern specifies hand applique, you can easily convert it to fusible applique. Follow the instructions for creating the stem pieces, stitch them down and add the leaves cut without seam allowances.
The pattern, by designer Kim Gillilan of Sugar Pine Designs, is for a 36 1⁄4″ square quilt.
