Black and White Flower #6

Flower #6 was actually the first flower I cut pieces for in this project.  I love the way these white waves and dots flow over the pieces.  I cut them from a 2 1/2 inch strip and had to be careful!

You can't see much, but here's the back.  I'm glad I chose to outline these pieces in white instead of black.  I think black would've taken away from the white waves.

Here's layer number two!  I fussy cut the petals at the bottom and the light purple clamshell in the middle.  I love to fussy cut geometric prints.  It's such a blast.

If you look carefully at the dark purple piece on the top part of this flower you can see that I switched the size of the blanket stitching on the inside and the outside of the piece.  I used a larger size on the outside to emphasize the shape and a smaller size on the inside because I didn't want to take away from the fussy cut clamshell piece underneath.

Look at that dot!  I was debating what to put in the center of this flower when I realized that this motif was the exact right size to go in the center.  I was glad to have some extra black fabric around the edge though so that when I did my blanket stitching it didn't cut into the pattern at all.

And the back!  All done!

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. This is GORGEOUS! Not that all the rest of them haven't been! I just thought I needed to comment how much I enjoy watching your posts with the step by step creation of each block. How many blocks have you made so far and how many do you have to go? Did you design all these yourself?

  2. WOW!!!!!! very inspiring and motivating, I need to stop looking I don't want to start another quilt this year LOL Glenda
