In this sweet, dare-I-say "girly" quilt, flowers are assembled as traditional Dresden Plates and affixed to the quilt top using fusible web and machine applique. The background is blocked, which gives you some freedom with using different fabrics for variety. If you don't want to make an entire quilt, use the leaf and flower templates to make a pillow, handbag or tea towel. Have fun with it!
All 8 fabrics from my Daisies 'N Such collection are featured. DNS is available now at many fine local quilt shops and online fabric retailers. See the full list on our Where to Buy page, and I think some of them will be offering kits for this. Please ask the proprietress if you don't see it.

I made 3 copies of the flower petal template on cardstock. Once I cut them out, I stacked and taped them together to make a more rigid cutting template. I put double-sided tape on the bottom, placed it on my stack of petal fabrics and cut 8 at a time with my rotary cutter. Zip zang zoop!
I have been fussing with some sort of posy concept like this for a few fabric collections now, thinking it would be far too challenging. It is not at all! I consider myself a beginner / almost intermediate quilter. As trite as it is to say, if I can do it, you can do it!
