At the holidays you will find brightly colored poinsettias all around my home. They are a tradition for our family. That is why I did a double take when I saw this pretty poinsettia quilt block from Epida Studio. What I really like about this design is that it is an appliqué pattern. I don’t do a lot of appliqué, but every now and then I like to give it a try.
I definitely need to add a poinsettia quilt to my collection and it might just be made with this block.
Made with fusible webbing, the designer’s block measures about 4 1/2″. However, one could easily adjust the scale of the pattern depending on how it is printed. Along with the standard quilt supplies, you will need fusible web.
The designer provides step-by-step instructions in the tutorial, even including directions on tracing the pattern. You can finish it with machine or hand embroidery and she explains both methods. I particularly like the way she used the flowers in her table runner pictured at the end of the article.
For those of you who like appliqué, this is an easy pattern to make.
