2019/09/06: Lollipop Flowers

Friday 6 September 2019
Tutor Stuart Hillard
Duration 10am - 4pm

A fun day with Stuart learning his technique for Turned edge Applique with your sewing machine... from his new book “simple shapes, stunning quilts”

Flowers always make me happy...from the most sophisticated arrangement to a wild flower growing by the side of the road and they inspire many of my quilt designs and colour schemes.  Simplicity of shape and repetition of the block allow me to go completely crazy with colours...bright turquoise prints make for an exciting “neutral” background and to top it off, raindrop quilting!  Always remember, “No showers...no flowers!”

For one block you will need (block size 10")

  • Four assorted turquoise prints for the block background, each 5 ½” x 5 ½”
  • Three assorted bright scraps for the flower ...7” squares of each is plenty
  • Two assorted green scraps for the leaves
  • One ¾” wide bias cut strip of fabric for the stem
  • A 3/8” bias tape maker.
  • Spray starch, a small childs paintbrush, large pieces of card from a cereal box...the front and back is plenty, a small iron (travel irons are ace!) and a pressing surface.
  • Sewing machine, cutting mat, ruler, rotary cutter and sewing kit 

For my quilt I’ve made 16 lollipop flower blocks and set them with pieced sashing... I always think it’s best to choose sashing fabrics after you’ve made the blocks and “audition” them... you’ll need 1 m of each of two fabrics  and ½ metre of one more for the cornerstones.
