If the person who made this quilt has the name of the pattern that would be great.
Thank you so much for your help.

    If you segment it...say the crossing gold stripe that is wider for intstance...so you would put 14 2 1/2 in strips x 36 in. Then add the wider, that looks like a 4 1/2 x 36 strip to me. Ok, segment ONE done. Set aside. Now do segment 2, the small vertical strips on the left, looks like 17 that would be 2 1/2"x 12 1/2? Once you get those sewn in a strip, add to the other one. Now set thos asisde and do the top section 7 2 1/2in strips x 36, set aside.
    Now the last would be around 5 2 1/2 in x15? and then add the big piece 4 1/2 x 15? Join those 2 top segments together, attach to the bottom.

    BTW I think the finished size is around 36x50?? Of course you could vary that by adding more strips, just remember if you add 3 more in one segment, you will need to add that much more in the other part to accomodate the extra inches

    Decide how you want to do the applique. If you do it the hard way I am clueless. Since it looks like a baby quilt, I would do shaggy raw edge applique on the flower outer petals and the centers, leaving a generous 1/2 to 3/4in to rag out on each edge. Or you could do the normal machine applique and just narrow zig zag around it all.

    Hope that helps, you may need to do some adjusting on the widths. I am going from a computer monitor

    PM me if you need to, I will try to help.
