Quilting Flower Design that can be used for Quilts, Embroidery or a Coloring Page

Today I’m sharing a beautiful floral quilting design cut from a newspaper that can be used for embroidery or a coloring page as well. Done by Eveline Foland, it’s not dated but most likely from the 1930’s.

This design is beautiful in quilting, either for silk cushions or as a quilting design for the plain blocks of a pieced or appliqued quilt. If it is too large for your blocks omit a leaf or blossom.  It may be repeated and quilted into a border. When used for silk cushion it is distinctive. Any quilt fan will find many ways to use the design. Just a hint is enough.

Welcome to this Friday’s VTNS (Vintage Textile and Needlework Sellers) Fan Freebie!

It seems like I’ve been on a flower theme the last few weeks. Maybe because it’s almost Spring and I’m starting to see pretty blooms here and there in my town. Besides vintage patterns, I love gardening, and have been planning my flower beds for this year. I don’t dare go in a nursery until I have an idea of what I’m going to plant or the sky’s the limit once I get in there!

 

Today I’m sharing a pretty Dutch Tulip quilt pattern from 1931. Designed by Eveline Foland and published in the Kansas City Star Newspaper.

It is an applique quilt block using red, green and gold. Part of the instructions were cut off when it was added to a scrap book so I will try to repeat them here and fill in the blanks.

The glorious season of tulips that has just passed in Kansas City should suggest any number of lovely color combinations for this conventionalized applique design.  The pattern may be developed i many different colors and the narrow circle can either be appliqued or embroidered in a simple “chain” or “stem” stitch, using a rather heavy green thread. Cut a plain white block nine inches square for the background. Allow for narrow seams.

I’ve shared several other Kansas City Star Newspaper quilt patterns through the years. Check the Related Posts below or do a search for quilt patterns in the search box at the top of this blog.
