Tropically Bird of Paradise

Tropically Bird of Paradise is done!  This is 17" square and can be combined with any of the other Tropically patterns.  I hand appliqued my flowers but the patterns can be used for fusible or machine applique if that is how you like to do your applique. The applique on all of these is pretty simple and should not be intimidating for the quilter with some hand applique experience.  Soon I will have a quilt to show with four of the Tropically patterns together.  When I have that done the instructions will be included in the patterns.  First a picture of bird of paradise flowers that I have growing in my yard.

The second one had two flowers on one stem.  See the gecko on the stem on the left?
If you purchase four of the Tropically patterns from me you will get a discount of $4
