Clam Flower #1 - Part 2

Clam Flowers has become a bit of an obsession for me of late.  It's getting done a lot faster than I thought it would and I can't wait to keep working on it!  

Here's a link to Part One.

This is the back of layer three.  You can see that I am using a variety of sizes of blanket stitching.  I have come to using this because I think it adds a bit more variety to my blocks.

Here's the front of layer three.

This piece of green fabric at the bottom of the stem was giving me a few problems because I couldn't decide which thread to stitch it in.

I ended up picking a neutral green thread so it wouldn't stand out a lot (the right most spool above).

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Just love your designs. What kind of interfacing do you use for stablizing you stitching?

  2. Suzy these clam flowers are stunning, when I saw them on Esrher's blog they jumped right out at me a drew me in to your site and then I realised who you were! I DO love your quilt book and have enjoyed so many lovely quilts that have been made from it. Off to trying and do some sewing while my wee DGD 4 has a sleep I'm baby sitting to day and we have been sewing a little on a
    quilt she wants Cheers Glenda

  3. It is so beautiful! thank you for bringing us along on the adventure!
