Here is a really easy project for your summer table. I designed it in EQ7 and used their book EQ6 Applique Drawing to learn how. Last I looked the book was on sale.

Here are my fabrics:

I did replace the bright blue on the end for a lighter blue because the blue showed through the yellow petals too much.

Here are the dies I used.

The first one is called “quilters leaves” and the circle is a 4 1/2″ die.

Here is the basic block:

the center is 6 1/2″ and of course Accuquilt has that in a die. The blue and green squares and pastel strips are done with the 2 1/2″ strip cutter.

Sashing I had to cut.. 1 1/2″ wide and the outer border is cut 3 1/2″ wide.

Here is what I did with the circles and quilters leaves:

I used 5 of each color leaves and some of my favorite Kaffe Fasset fabric.

Everything had Wonder Under ironed on. So I just ironed it down and did a  blind hem stitch to hold it all together.

Here is the finished project.


Hope you like it… until next time!
