The Floral quilted purse pattern will create a handbag fit for a queen -- you! The pattern uses and Garden Queen Iris quilt block, with a finished size that varies according to the bag you choose. Download the two-page Floral quilted purse pattern as a PDF, and print out the pattern. You'll need to enlarge the quilt block 125% before you get started.
To make the Floral quilted purse pattern:
Make 1 block, and sew to bag. Add diamond star squares border (see Borders page) to each side of bag. Finished size depends on size of bag.
To make the Garden Queen Iris quilt block:
Background: Cut 1. All other pieces: Fuse double-sided webbing to fabrics. Leaves: Cut 1 each. Upper petals: Cut 2, and cut 2 from reverse pattern. Lower petals: Cut 2, and cut 2 from reverse pattern. (Do not add seam allowances to fused pieces.)
Place and fuse all pieces. By machine, applique all fused pieces using narrow zigzag stitch. Use same stitch to make flower stalks. (Option: Hand-stitch cording to background for flower stems.) Sew a button to middle of each flower.
