3-D floral applique designs

PATCH FLORA – 3D APPLIQUE DESIGNS

A machine applique technique. These are highly original flower designs where the back parts of the flower are worked directly on to the background but the front petals are worked separately with wadding in them and applied to the design after quilting so that they are raised and the whole flower “comes to life” in three dimensions. They are enlarged so a flower makes a whole cushion, thus making them easier to sew.

Each design pack comprises: a full size working diagram, a comprehensive list of requirements, complete illustrated instructions on how to work the design, tips on quilting and finishing. Designs are suitable for working on a background of unfinished size 18″ x 22″ or 18″ x 18″ (slightly less than a fat quarter). They can be made up into wall hangings, cushions, bags, quilts or appliqued directly onto clothing such as a jacket back. You provide the fabric.
