1/4 Yard Frolic Swirls Wild Rose – Applique flowers
1/4 Yard Frolic Swirls Daffodil – Applique flowers
1/2 Yard Frolic Solids Tiger Lily -Applique flowers and words
Start out by cutting all of your layer cake squares in 1/2. As show in the image above.
After you cut the layer cake squares in 1/2 you will now cut the rectangles into angles.
Start at the bottom corner and then line the ruler up 2″ from the side, as show in the image above. Cut.
Repeat the process to make your blocks look like the above block.
Now you will lay your blocks out like the image above.
To sew the blocks together you will sew into strips.
First sew the agles to complete strips as show in the image above.
Then you will sew the quilt top together in strips as show in the image above.
Now take your charm charm pack.
Using our starch applique tutorial you will cut circles from 28 of your charm squares.
I used a CD for my large circle template.
You will also cut 4 – 2.5″ circles and 5 – 4″ circles for flower centers.
Applique the circles to the centers of all the full blocks, except for the solid print blocks.
Now take your two fat quarters and your solid print.
From those you will cut out 12 orange, 9 pink & 9 yellow flower petals.
Applique the flower petals onto the solid print blocks.
You will be making 2 – 1/2 blocks and 4 full flower blocks.
*The flower and letter images are included in the printable version.
Now add circles to the centers of all of your flower blocks.
Use the image below for applique placement.
I prefer to use brown thread and a blanket stitch for my applique.
Now you will add your borders.
Note that the top and side borders are smaler than the bottom borders.
Top and side blue borders are cut 2.5″
The bottom blue border is cut 3″
The top and side brown borders are cut 3.5″
The bottom brown border is cut 4.5″
Using your solid orange material you will noww applique the words, Let your imagination bloom.
*Letters for applique are included in the pritable version.
Make two yellow flowers for the two o’s.
Creating a bottom border that looks like the image above.
Now, quilt, bind and then add your buttons to centers of flowers.
