Fiesta Flowers Wall Hanging

Bright colors, geometric prints, and appliqué shapes hold a quilted party on a background of lime green prints. The festive combination results in a bloom-filled modern wall hanging. Fabrics are from the Folkloric Blooms collection by Sue Spargo and Wendy Morris and the Fresco collection by Patrick Lose, both for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.

Appliqué Blocks

1. Sew together two lime green print and two mottled lime green 8-1⁄2" squares in pairs; press seams in opposite directions. Join pairs to make a foundation square. Press seam in one direction. The foundation square should be 16-1⁄2" square including seam allowances. Fold foundation square in half diagonally and crease lightly to make a placement line; unfold.

2. Referring to Appliqué Placement Diagram, arrange one A flower, two matching B flowers, one C stem, two D stems, four E leaves, and two F leaves on foundation square. Following manufacturer’s instructions, fuse pieces in place. Using threads in colors that match the appliqués, machine-zigzag-stitch around edges of all appliqué pieces to make a block.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make four blocks total.
