Eye Of The Beholder Quilt Designs

By Margaret Brewster Willingham

Luscious and lovely. An intoxicating beauty.

applique and reverse applique pattern - hand and machine directions

As the Fuchsia blossoms spill over in a profusion of blooms, may you have overflowing abundance.

The eighth block in the Victorian Flower Garden Quilt series (9 blocks in total) - Collect all 9 - 16" x 16" blocks and make a quilt. Look for the Victorian Flower Garden Quilt IV Expansion pattern coming in June 2016 - with an applique wrought iron gate to sash and border your lovely garden of flowers.

Bring a touch of Spring & Summer inside.

Fuchsia is a smaller-scale applique project - perfect for beginning quilters and appliquers.

Create this block and turn it into a pillow or make it as a block to fit into a quilt.

Pattern includes all three directions for creation.

  • Reverse applique by hand
  • Reverse applique by machine
  • Mix applique and reverse applique for extra 3D effect: reverse applique the stems and leaves, then applique the flowers to make them really pop.
