We’re getting in the mood for spring, so this month’s free pattern is a perfect fit. APQS Dealer and quilt shop owner Heidi Kaisand designed “Tulip Wheels” after being inspired by Danish architecture. “When I was travelling in Denmark I was blown away by the ornate wood carvings we’d see on buildings as we walked the streets of Copenhagen,” she said. Heidi marveled at how in the carvings she saw it felt like there was so much depth in the work. As she designed this pattern, she tried to use layers of color to give the quilt visual depth.

The pattern for “Tulip Wheels” has instructions for fusible appliqué, a technique that makes the appliqué process simple. Having the right supplies on hand also makes any quilt easier. The featured quilt was appliquéd using a combination of SoftFuse Premium fusible web (great for its very light weight and soft hand) and Super Nonstick Needles (which won’t get gummed up even with heavier weight fusible webs).

The quilt was quilted by Stephanie Unruh and Liz Meimann at A Quilted Memory. They chose the  “Circleville” design by Anne Bright Designs. This digital edge-to-edge design was a natural choice to play up the radiating rings of appliqués.
