Joanna is constantly inspired by the very traditional 4-block quilts from centuries past. Often large chunky applique shapes were combined with simple block piecing as well as pieced borders for stunning results.
This is her version of those vintage 4-block quilts. These simple pieced baskets, each one framed with its own sawtooth border are finished off with some fun flower & leaf shapes that resemble everyone's favorite weeds, the dandelion bloom!
These large applique shapes come together in no time at all using the starch method of applique (special hints & instructions are included in the pattern) but if applique is just not your thing, you can also leave your baskets empty for equally pleasing results in the end! Either way these are the first dandelions that are good enough to keep instead of banish from your garden!
Pattern includes tips on simple piecing (no piecing templates here) settings, sawtooth blocks, & applique.
