September Giveaway- Passion Flower Pattern and Batik Fat Quarter



The giveaway for September is an applique pattern by Sylvia Pippen.  We carry a large collection of Sylvia's Sashiko designs on our website.  But Sylvia also has a few applique patterns.  I think this one is really pretty and I just happen to have a batik fabric that is perfect for the flowers.  This pattern is for those who enjoy hand applique and embroidery.  It makes a 27 x 37 inch wall quilt.   You'll need a little more fabric, but the fat quarter will get you started on the leaves and flowers.

The winner will be selected by random drawing on October 1st.

It,s been alot of years (maybe eons) since I've done hand work,but this project may be the one to bring me back to the needle and hoop. The passionflower design
is beautiful.

I am not so much a fan of batik, but I certainly do love purple..

Michele said...

I love the pattern. You're right-- that batik is perfect for the flowers
On another note, a must be a robot because after several tries to prove I am not, I still can't get the verification right.
