Easy enough for a novice yet appealing enough for the expert, these fanciful baskets and flowers will entice all applique lovers! Complete patterns are provided for a full-sized, twelve-block quilt including lattice sashing, a meandering vine border, and quilting design suggestions. Perfectly suited to the block-of-the-month format, these flower-filled patterns can also be used individually or in smaller groupings.

Instructions on applique basics and a no-fail miter ensure wonderful results. Directions for several small projects are given including a pillowcase, pillows, table runners, and wallhangings.

In addition to the delightfully drawn baskets, containers such as a watering can, birdhouse, barrel, picket fence, coal bucket, and butter churn all are waiting to be filled with colorful bouquets.
