Whigged Out on the West Coast
by Andi Perejda
Sewing machine required.
Pattern fee: $10
Background Fabric: For the entire quilt, as patterned, 4 and one-half to five yards. For each repeated appliqué block,
the background fabric should be cut 24 inches square. There are five of these blocks in the quilt as made by Andi. You are free to make
as many as you like! The large bouquet block should be cut 40 inches square. You may vary the background fabrics for a scrappy look.
Other Fabrics: Choose colors which please you and which contrast with your background fabric. You will need a yard or
so of stem fabric, but you may use several closely related colors of green if you wish. The heart-shaped flowers and the circular flowers
may be whatever pleases you. Scraps will work, but the pieces must be good size.
