Flower Block Exchange
You may remember this flower from THIS POST last week.
We exchanged our flower and nine patch blocks yesterday at our quilt guild meeting. The flower I made is my signature flower. It is really easy, and I have several versions of it in patterns of mine including:
The cover quilt “Charming Flowers” in Simply charming Collection,
a version with sashing and pieced borders called “May Flowers” in Simply Charming Seasons,
and a version with leaves and applique in a single pattern called Sweet Baby Kate.
This was my nine patch block. I did end up making two versions of this block. The other version had the dark red in the center.
I ended up making a few extra flowers and nine patch blocks because I just made up all that the strips I cut would make. I laid out the blocks today. What do you think?
I am so impressed with all of the blocks! I love it! I have 6 extra nine patch blocks, so I am going to add two more rows. Instead of making extra flowers, I am going to use 6 plain blocks that have a busy floral print. I think it will work. It won’t happen until a couple other things get done first.
