Assemble Quilt Top

1. Sew together an assorted white-and-black print 5-1⁄2" square and an assorted white-and-black print 3-1⁄2×5-1⁄2" rectangle to make a background unit (Background Unit Diagram). Press seam toward darker print. Repeat to make five background units total.

2. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, sew together five background units to make quilt center. Press seams in one direction. The quilt center should be 25-1⁄2×8-1⁄2" including seam allowances.

3. Sew short black swirl print inner border strips to short edges of quilt center. Add long black swirl print inner border strips to remaining edges. Press all seams toward inner border.

4. Referring to Quilt Assembly Diagram, sew together 10 assorted green, yellow, pink, turquoise, and orange print 1-1⁄2×3-1⁄2" rectangles to make a short outer border strip. Press seams in one direction. Repeat to make a second short outer border strip. (Designer Linda Sullivan made her border strips mirror images of each other.)

5. Sew together 33 assorted green, yellow, pink, turquoise, and orange print 1-1⁄2×3-1⁄2" rectangles to make a long outer border strip. Press seams in one direction. Repeat to make a second long outer border strip.

Appliqué Quilt Top

1. Referring to Appliqué Placement Diagram, lay out all appliqué pieces on quilt top. When pleased with the arrangement, fuse pieces in place. (Linda recommends individually assembling each flower with its stem and leaves on a nonstick pressing sheet before fusing it to the quilt top.)

2. Set up your machine for a 2mm-wide satin stitch. To prevent quilt top from puckering while you appliqué, place tear-away stabilizer on quilt top wrong side and pin in place.

3. Using thread that matches each appliqué and working from bottom layer to top, machine-appliqué pieces. Satin-stitch a vein down the center of each leaf.

4. Using contrasting embroidery floss, hand-stitch a button to the center of each appliquéd flower.
