Wildflower Album: Applique & Embroidery Patterns

Tags: , , , ,

The next best thing to a meadow full of wildflowers is a home graced with quilted botanical designs. Choose your favorite wildflower to make a single applique or embroidered block for a pillow, a small wallhanging, or a medallion center for a larger piece. Add sashing and borders to create a variety of quilt sizes. Some blocks, such as Wild Ginger, have as few as 10 pieces; others, like Wild Lupine or Texas Bluebonnet, have as many as 91 pieces. Appliqued blocks can also be embellished with Embroidery. Each of the 40 block designs has a full-sized pattern. Color notes for fabric selection, descriptions, and characteristics of each of the flowers from nature are included. AUTHORBIO: Before Bea started quilting in the mid 1980s, she was not familiar with quilting in any form. However, she had a background in home economics. She also studied weaving and oil and watercolor painting, and she earned a certificate from the Sogetsu School of flower arranging. After Bea started quilting, and especially doing applique, she discovered how the painting and flower-arranging media were interchangeable with quilting designs in color and form. REVIEW: Bea Oglesby draws upon her many years of experience and expertise to show how to add sashing and borders to create a variety of quilt sizes. The informative, easy-to-follow text is enhanced with color notes for fabric selections, descriptions and characteristics of each of the flowers modeled from nature. -Reviewers Bookwatch, January 2001
