This quilt is a true work of art, and yes, it is mainly aimed at appliqué enthusiasts as this wild herbarium is composed of dozens of different fl owers, cut from a subtle palette of greys and taupes, appliquéd directly on a background.
This marvel will be given to you in three parts, due to the enormous full-size pattern!

Important note regarding the background fabric
- If you have not yet purchased the background fabric, you will need 5.3 m (57/8yd) of fabric. Either via three 175 x 65 cm (69” x 26”) strips sewn together OR via an assembled 175 x 192 cm (69” x 77”) rectangle.
- If you have already purchased your background fabric, do not worry. All you need to do is to cut a central strip measuring 105 cm wide (42”) x 175 cm (69”) long (diagram #1). Then cut the two strips measuring 105 cm wide (42”) x 175 cm (69”) long which will be added at the top and bottom of the central strip. In doing so, you will not have any problems in creating the background rectangle measuring 175 x 192 cm (69” x 77”).

This patchworking method allows you to make impressive mosaics.
This small marvel that evokes the famous Middle Eastern confection was entirely constructed using the EPP (English Paper-Piecing) method. The blocks, skilfully laid out according to colour, create very interesting framing effects and the fabric choice is truly elegant.
