Construction is Simplified for Wonderful Results!

A vintage block has been updated for today’s quilter in this beautiful quilt. Construction has been simplified and the stems have been elongated for a lovely design.

The block itself can be used in many different projects. The pattern includes instructions for a table runner, lap quilt or table topper (shown here) and bed sized quilts.

Simple piecing creates the flowers while the stems are done with hand applique (or consider machine stitching, for example this machine method). A Clover half-inch bias tape maker speeds construction of the stems. Or, consider using rick rack for the stems in smaller quilts.

Watch as Kimberly from the Fat Quarter Shop demonstrates how the blocks go together. She prefers applique pins for applying the stems.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
