Patchwork Plus Applique is a Winning Combination!
There’s something extra charming about quilts that combine patchwork with applique. The combination of straight line piecing and curves often produces very memorable quilts.
The “Idaho Lily” quilt by Kim Diehl is no exception. It makes the most of both techniques to produce a beautiful quilt that will look like it took far longer to make than it did.

If you’ve not tried applique before, this is a good quilt to expand your skills on. The only applique pieces are the leaves and stems. The pattern suggests glue basting and machine stitching, but use whatever technique you prefer.
The “Idaho Lily” quilt measures 27.5″ x 27.5″. It will look great on your wall or table!
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!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
