Plumeria Floating on Water by Sylvia Pippen Designs

Learn how to make realistic Plumeria!

Plumeria is one of Hawaii’s most loved lei flowers. This quilt combines a Sashiko water design with appliquéd plumeria.

Learn how to “fussy-cut” dimensional flowers, pattern transfer, detailed sashiko, appliqué & finishing techniques.


Kit:  Take the guesswork out of choosing fabrics with a kit!

Save the transfer step!  The design is screened on Kona cloth; just follow the dashes for perfect sashiko stitches.  Plumeria fabrics include batiks and other cotton color washes from pale yellow to deep pink.  Hoffman turquoise batik for borders, binding, and water.  Sashiko thread included.  Batting and backing fabric are not included.

Fabrics are carefully chosen to match the original quilt on the pattern cover, but may vary slightly.
