Dijanne Cevaal designed and made this wall hanging pattern while abroad in France. For many years, Australian flora and fauna have strongly influenced Dijanne's work; this piece is part of her study of the banksia. You too can study this Australian native flora while appliqueing this quilted wall hanging.

Detailed step-by-step instructions, colour photographs and clear diagrams take you through the each step of this quilted wall hanging pattern.
Take inspiration from Dijanne's colour scheme and use a true to nature colour palette. Or take on a challenge and create your own look.
Quilt as desired. Dijanne worked closely spaced irregular vertical lines on the leaf strips, pebbles and ovals of various sizes on the banksia strip, short straight lines on the two narrow light background strips, and a leafy design on the oval-shapes strip.
Stitch around each banksia shape close to the edge of the fabric three times as closely as possible when working the second and third lines. This has the effect of making the areas between lines of stitching sit up off the surface of the quilt, almost as if they'd been trapuntoed.
This project is recommended for advanced crafters who want to extend their quilting skills.
