Wild Flowers - applique quilt pattern workshop
What you get+-
It's a riot of crazy colored flowers!
There are fourteen flower appliqué patterns which you can make into a crib, nap, or twin-sized quilt. You can also use the appliqué patterns on their own to embellish T-shirts, make tote bags, pillows and more. You can even shrink them down to use as embroidery patterns.
You Get. . .
- A digital pattern delivered by email. (If you're not sure what a PDF pattern is, you'll find more info here.)
- SVG files for use with electric cutting machines.
- Fourteen flower appliqué patterns – full size so there’s no enlarging needed
- Reversed and exploded appliqué patterns to print directly onto freezer paper or fusible adhesive. No tracing! Every piece is labeled so it’s easy to assemble after you’ve cut it all apart.
- Detailed instructions and lots of step by step photos – you’ll never feel lost or wonder if you’re doing it right.
- Detailed cutting instructions for crib, nap and twin sized quilts - plus links to more info for additional sizes.
- Instructions for assembling the quilt – layering, basting, quilting and binding – with links to videos for all of them - including links to Quilt As You Go videos.
- Links to videos teaching you all the skills you’ll need to complete the project. It’s a workshop disguised as a pattern!
The main blocks finish at 10" square. The pattern includes detailed instructions for the following sizes. . .
- crib (50" square)
- napping (50" x 60") - this is my favorite size for on the couch
- twin (70" x 90")
I designed this quilt to teach appliqué – so it’s great for beginners, and a fun and relaxing project for more experienced stitchers. If you can use your sewing machine, you have the skills you need to make this cute and cuddly wild flower quilt.
I used appliqué with fusible adhesive and Quilt As You Go to make a super easy quilt - almost all done on the machine. The pattern also includes links to videos teaching needle turn appliqué and machine appliqué with freezer paper, in case you prefer those methods.

Patterns are unique and so fun.
I am working on the Wild Flowers quilt now for a grand daughter's gift. It is the perfect project because I can customize the fabrics and the flower patterns. I am working on one strip at a time and that way it does not become overwhelming. I love the flowers. I think I will also make a small wall hanging as well for her bedroom. Great pattern and great directions.
Well done Wendi,
Everything is easy to follow.
I bought this pattern to add to my collection. I am currently making Happy Houses, so will start Wile Flowers after that.
Love, love, love! The collection of the different flowers is absolutely beautiful. Have already started on a quilt. Enjoying every minute.
