Exotic Flowers 2 – Traditional Pattern for Hand/Fusible Applique
Exotic Flowers 2 is the second of a three-part series. Each Exotic Flowers package includes nine different appliqué ﬂowers over a stained glass window. The Jacobean style ﬂowers have been recreated from Pat Campbell’s famous “Birds of Paradise” pattern. They have been added to a Stained Glass Window background block which was designed by Anna Aldmon.
Use the layout diagrams on the thumb drive to trace the stained glass window and appliqué shapes. To create the “lead” part of the stained glass, use Clover® 1/4″ fusible bias tape and secure with a zigzag stitch. Join the finished blocks together with 1″ black fabric to simulate “lead” between the window blocks.
Applique the Jacobean ﬂowers over your windows to complete the projects. If you have a cutting machine, use the provided cut files to make the appliqué shapes even faster! Included is the mapping of the Island Batik fabric to all the appliqué shapes.
These designs are easily adjusted to be sewn as single blocks or other configurations. They can then be made into table runners, tote bags, or pillows.
