Carolyn Friedlander - Hesperides Quilt Pattern by

  • Hesperides Quilt Pattern by Carolyn Friedlander

    Well rounded and to the point–my Hesperides Quilt pattern is a play on opposites–both in terms of shape and weight. While playing with my Euclid fabric collection on Essex (a linen cotton blend fabric), the weight had me thinking a lot about transparency and opacity. I loved pairing the meaty linen with Robert Kaufman’s oh-so-delicate lawn and quilting cotton. This project is the perfect opportunity to perfect your points and explore a variety of fabrics.

    + Part of the Slow Sewing Studio, this appliqué pattern offers plenty of practice with points in appliqué.

    + Featured fabrics are from my Euclid collection with Robert Kaufman.

    project size(s) : 18” x 18” sham set, plus 3 more quilt sizes.

    pre-cut friendly : works well with Fat Quarters

    techniques : needle-turn appliqué (Can use another appliqué technique if desired.)

    pattern extras : 2 shape sets for sham set and 3 sizes of quilts, how-to instructions with illustrations, directions for appliquéing sharp points and applying cording.
