Floral applique designs


A range of popular flowers for machine applique worked using the technique of applique from the back, which easily allows for very detailed designs. The designs are worked on a foundation of naturally-coloured American Muslin. Most of the enlarged subjects are designed to fit a fat quarter (of about 50 cm x 56 cm), making it easier to do the necessary machine satin stitch. The final quilting allows a wonderful realistic textured effect, particularly good for leaf veins. Some designs are embellished with free machine embroidery. Suitable for cushions, wallhangings, the centre of a quilt, or use a selection to make a full size quilt.

Each design pack comprises: a full size working diagram, complete illustrated instructions on how to work the design, tips on quilting, finishing and uses, a colour photograph of a worked example. You provide the fabric.
