Hibiscus Sunset is an applique pattern that has an inner scene of easy curve pieces that create the sky, sea, and sand. The bright yellow sunset reflects in the ocean. The border is decorated with beautiful hibiscus flowers, star flowers, small daisy-like flowers, leaves, and ferns. Use the same set of fabrics for each or use a combination of small pieces in a similar shade. All applique shapes are included in full-sized templates and the detailed instructions given will give you all the information necessary to make this wonderful landscape scene.
This beautiful seascape includes a sun setting in the horizon with reflections in the ocean and a border decorated in dazzling bright flowers to complement it. The background is made from gentle curves which can be applique or pieced if preferred.
