Fast Flowers Appliqué

Need a faux headboard for a little girl's twin bed? Make three blocks, arrange them in a horizontal row, and add borders to make a cute-as-can-be wall hanging. To complete the look, sew a couple more blocks into matching throw pillows. Fabrics are from the Juliana collection by Sue Zipkin for Clothworks.

Appliqué Blocks

1. Referring to Appliqué Placement Diagram, lay out one of each appliqué piece on a cream print 8-1/2x12-1/2" rectangle. Fuse all pieces in place.

2. Using threads that match appliqués and a narrow zigzag stitch, machine-appliqué around all edges, working from bottom layer to top, to complete a blue appliquéd block. The block should still be 8-1/2x12-1/2" including seam allowances.

3. Repeat steps 1 and 2 to make three appliquéd blocks total.
