Dogwood Blossoms Appliqué Quilt (and pattern!)

I am so excited to finally show you this finished quilt that I made what seems like ages ago—I had to keep it under wraps until now, because it’s coming out as a pattern in the April/May issue of McCall’s Quick Quilts!

The quilt is made using fusible appliqué and actually comes together relatively quickly. The size is 52″ x 52″—great for a wallhanging or crib quilt. It’s got plenty of negative space to highlight your quilting, too. I quilted the outlines of the dogwoods in the open blocks, which is a favorite technique of mine.

Issues for subscribers should be shipping this week, and will be on newsstands by the first week of March. There are a bunch of other lovely patterns inside as well, so it’s well worth grabbing a copy.

Here are a couple more pictures that I took a while ago (as you might be able to tell from the summery vegetation!).
