Primary TechniquePieced & Appliqued
Note: This quilt pattern uses fabrics from Lecien. Fabrics are coded in materials list.
- For flowers and rectangles, 1 fat eighth (9" x 20") EACH of these 25 Lecien “Floral Collection Flower Sugar” prints:
- For flower centers, 1/8 yd each of these Lecien “Basics” gingham prints:
- For background, 2-1/4 yds of this Lecien “Quilter’s First” dot print:
- For backing, 3-3/4 yds of this Lecien “Floral Collection Flower Sugar” print:
- For binding, 1/2 yd of this Lecien “Floral Collection Flower Sugar” print:
- For machine appliqué, 5 yds of fusible web (not required for hand appliqué)
- Applique templates
- For batting, 64” x 82” piece
Note: This quilt can be made with your favorite appliqué method. For hand appliqué, add a ¼” seam allowance around each template. For machine appliqué, trace the template shapes onto fusible web first and then apply the traced designs to the wrong side of the fabrics before cutting out the shapes.
- From EACH fat eighth cut:
(4) – 3-1/2” x 5-1/2” rectangles
(1) – A Flower
(1) – B Flower
(1) – C Flower
You should have 100 rectangles and 75 flowers.
Suggested cutting layout for fat eighths:
- From green gingham cut:
(12) – A Centers
(12) – B Centers
(12) – C Centers
Green centers go with the gray, yellow and pink flowers.
- From yellow gingham cut:
(13) – A Centers
(13) – B Centers
(13) – C Centers
Yellow centers go with the blue, green & red flowers.
- From white background cut: (5) – 8” x 75-1/2” LOF (Length of Fabric) strips
- From backing fabric cut: (2) – 67” x WOF (Width of Fabric) pieces
- From binding fabric cut: (7) – 2” OR 2-1/2” x WOF strips
- To make a pieced strip, randomly choose (25) rectangles and sew them together to make a 5-1/2” x 75-1/2” strip. Make a total of (4) pieced strips.
- To prepare the flowers, appliqué a center to each flower, matching the sizes by the letters.
- To make a flower panel, randomly pick (5) A, (5) B and (5) C flowers. Starting 2” from the top of a background strip, place the first flower. Use the photograph on the cover as a guideline. Position the flowers down the entire strip - leaving at least 1/2" of space from the sides for seam allowance - and pin in place. The flowers should look like they’re scattered so leave uneven spaces between them and turn the flowers so they
are oriented in different directions. There is no right or perfect way to position the flowers. Just play and have fun!
- Sew the flower panels & pieced strips together, starting and ending with a flower panel.
- Quilt as desired.
- Bind, wash and enjoy all the calorie-free sweetness of your new favorite quilt!
