It’s Great in Prints for Any Season!

This beautiful block is oversized so one block makes a lovely table mat. Combine several blocks for a larger quilt, whether that be a runner (sew three together), a throw, or something larger.

Play with flower colors or any color theme. Seasonal prints will be lovely too.

While this is not the easiest block you’ll ever make, the extra effort is well worth it. Yes, there are Y seams but the excellent instructions will walk you through them (this video is a big help too). Chances are you’ll be much more comfortable with them once you finish a block and ready to take on other Y-seam projects.

The completed block, designed by Carolyn Forster for Gathered, is 15½” at the widest point and 8″ along straight sides.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
