Flower Power pieced

I won’t lie, I unpicked a lot of stitches today but the flowers are all pieced together!

Flower Power PiecedThe larger squares are actually 4 & 3/4″, not the 5″ I thought they’d be, I inserted them *after* I had the flowers connected to the diamonds, it just seemed to work better. I now have to figure out how I’m going piece the edges. I’m thinking of sewing squares onto the end of each flower, trimming the edges flush with the diamonds and filling in the corners. I suppose I could also make it hexagonal or stepped. Round would be awesome as well.

This is how the quilt would look if placed horizontally.

  1. Excellent design. Really like the punch and I can see it will work with prints as well as with solids. Thank you for sharing and for the sewing tips.

  2. I like the first picture, with the flowers going up and down, as opposed to the diagonal set. Funny…I usually prefer diagonal settings, but not this time. It looks great! I like the colors.

    • Thanks Patti, I think it was a lot of work because I wasn’t 100% sure how I’d piece it together, now that I know, it’ll be much easier if I decide to make another.
