Mod Flower Quartet
This listing is for one, 13 page .pdf (electronic) pattern of four designs.
A little a little bit retro, a little bit current, whatever your taste in flowers might be, these four cute buds will be sure to satisfy!
1. Chloe. A pod based design with stylized features, has the proportions to show off your favorite midsize prints.
2. Emma. Poppy inspired, with opportunities for two or three of your favorite petal fabrics.
3. Olivia. A fun lollipop style, include a feature fabric in the center and make it pop.
4. Sadie. Tulip based pattern, have fun making your own Holland mix.
These are original quilt blocks designed by Barbara Cain. They each measure 8'' x 8'' when finished. They can be either paper pieced or traditionally pieced.
If you are a paper piecer, you know what to do!
If you are new to paper piecing and want to give it a try, you can download a free paper piecing tutorial and practice pattern from my blog. Just paste this path into your browser and you'll arrive at the blog post and Dropbox link for downloading:
If you plan to piece traditionally, simply cut apart the pattern and cut out the corresponding fabric pieces adding a 1/4" seam allowance to each side. It is important to be accurate with this! Sew the pieces together with 1/4'' seams just as you would with any other patchwork. Be sure to sew the pieces together in order, i.e., start with piece A1, then attach A2, A3, etc.. Once you connect all of the A pieces, do the same with the B pieces. When the B pieces are all connected to one another, sew B onto A, and so on.
These patterns would make great mug rugs, hot pads, apron pockets or pot holders. Enlarge the patterns to make table toppers, wall hangings or tote bags for your gardening friends!
