Dilly Flowers from Elise and Emelie

Dilly Flowers from Elise and Emelie

My lovely friend Elise from Elise & Emelie has created a fantastic English Paper Pieced Flower pattern that she calls Dilly Flowers. They’re so sweet!

She kindly sent me some of the pre-cut paper templates to try, in both half inch and one inch sizes. She sells these in her Etsy store. I used some of my favourite Liberty fabric scraps to create two precious flowers!

Being the clever lady that she is, Elise also created a digital file that has Dilly Flower sets with centre hexagons measuring half, three quarter and one inch and also 1.5 and two inches. I printed and cut out the 1.5 inch set and created a lovely large Liberty Dilly Flower too.

I’m not sure what I will use these beauties for yet. I can either adorn some of my pretty projects with individual flowers, or create a whole selection of them and make a gorgeous flower quilt.

Stay tuned to see what happens. Keep up to date over on Instagram. And check the hashtag #dillyflowers.

Happy stitching, Lauren x

    Hello from a wet and windy UK!! just joined your website and it is fabulous and so helpful, i love the look of the Dilly flowers too. I have started making hexes using glue …..Sewline but after a few days the edges are coming away! I am bed bound unfortunately for a while after an op and cannot use an iron, darent ask my husband to press hexes, he has so much to do!! do you think I should thread baste them to be sure? Thanks so much….

    Take care,
    Annie Dunn

      Hi Annie, thanks for your comment. I’m so pleased you have found a way to enjoy some sewing whilst you recover from your op. I would encourage you to test using slightly more glue or place the hexagons under a heavy book whilst the glue sets. And if that doesn’t work, thread basting is always a suitable alternative. Best of luck and best wishes, Lauren.
