Texas Star Variation

Here’s a great example of an appliqué pattern with a long history—this “Texas Star Variation” pattern is from a quilt housed in the International Quilt Study Center in Lincoln, Nebraska. Besides being beautiful, how neat would it be to hang a piece of the past in your own home, but created with your own hands? One of the things I love most about this pattern is the variation of color in the center blocks—it lends movement to the piece overall, inviting the viewer to look more closely.

Is a smaller piece more your speed? Try the “Bloomin’ Botanicals” wall hanging pattern designed by Erin Russek. The appliqué is bold and bright just in time for spring. This piece would be really fun to adapt for different seasons. Notice the densely quilted background and how it makes the appliqué really pop. At only 27″ square this piece is very achievable in several variations!

Looking for a quilt that combines traditional piecing with appliqué? Look no further!

I love the English garden feel of this quilt!
