    Large applique flowers in shades of orange display a wonderful array of colors on a patchwork background made from 2 1/2" strips. The color wash background enhances the bright flowers which are machine blanket stitched over top. A free-motion butterfly finishes off the design nicely. We give a step-by-step guide with a video to make the butterfly.
