Vienna Lily Triptych top
This pieced triptych (3 panel) wallhanging fits in with the current theme of minimalism, as it uses a few basic shapes to represent a floral---perhaps an Asian lily.
You can make it as one panel or three. Below is a free pattern (remember you get what you pay for!)
Vienna Lily Tryptich
35" x 35"
I just hand quilted this. The top is probably ten years old, made so long ago that I didn't have any William Morris repros to work with. The flowers are batiks and the leaves shades of sage green prints. It's been so long that Pam Mayfield and I can't remember who pieced it. I think she did but I guess I'm taking the credit.
Trademark of the Viennese Workshop
The Wiener Werkstätte
My inspiration was the trademark above and the lilies in my garden (they have to grow in pots because voles snack on them.)
A single panel finishes to 10" x 35".
The shade garden
The flower finishes to 10" square
Cutting Instructions for 1 Floral
A - Cut 2 squares 5 7-8".
Cut each in half diagonally to make 2 triangles. You need 4 triangles.
B - Cut 1 square 6-1/4".
Cut with 2 diagonal cuts to make 4 triangles.
C - Cut 1 rectangle 1-3/8" x 5-1/2"
D - Cut 4 squares 2-5/8"
E - Cut 2 rectangles 2-5/8" x 1-3/8"
Cutting Instructions for 1 Leaf panel
F - Cut 1 dark & 1 medium rectangle 6" x 4-3/4". Cut from corner to corner diagonally in different directions. You need 4 triangles.
Here's why I think Pam pieced this.
I had a lot of trouble getting the triangles to go the right way.
I have no advice.
Calling her won't do any good.
G - The leaf G is a strangely proportioned parallelogram--- a rhomboid, I believe.
Cut 5 dark and 5 medium rectangles 8-3/4" x 3-5/8". Cut using the template below.
But flip the template over so you get the left and the right side of each stem. You need:
Left Side: 3 dark, 2 medium
Right Side: 3 light, 2 medium
To print the template, click on the above picture and save it as a JPG or in a word file.
Print it out so the long side measures 7" with seams.
