Waterlily

Waterlily

It seemed appropriate to choose a water plant as quilt motif for the Lady of the Lake quilt, but it could of course be used for any other 7 inch (18 cm) square quilt block. The Waterlily can be quilted in approximately 45 minutes and is moderately difficult. In this version, it is not suitable for machine quilting.

For the Lady of the Lake quilt, we aligned the Waterlily alongside the diagonal between two large adjoining triangles (see picture below). It seemed logical to do this although quilting along the diagonal seam is not particularly amusing.

The attached PDF file shows the Waterlily in the size appropriate for the Lady of the Lake quilt. Of course you can increase or decrease the size using a photocopier according to the demands of any other project.
