Choose One of These Quilt Patterns or Create Your Own!
This beautiful flower block is made with standard piecing – no applique or paper piecing required. Once you’ve mastered the block you can go on and incorporate it in several different projects.
Designer Lea Anne Brummett of Podunk Pretties has many great ideas for using this block. We’ve included links to several to spark your creativity.
To get started, consider making one block and turning it into a little wall hanging. Scalloped edges make it extra charming. When constructed as shown, the finished mini quilt is 26″ x 35″. (The unfinished block is 9″ x 18″.)

The flower block and mini quilt instructions are found here:
When printing the pattern, make sure the box in the center measures 1″ square once printed.
“Hello Spring” beautifully incorporates flower blocks into a 21.5 x 61″ banner. There are full instructions for the banner, including the letters, the pot with a heart and the butterfly blocks.
“Ring Around the Posy” incorporates several flower blocks and butterflies into a quilt that is 49.5″ square. It will be a lovely baby quilt, wall hanging or table topper.
The “Cottage Blooms” quilt is made from rows of flowers with a fence around the outside and butterflies in the corners. The finished quilt is 63″ x 81″.
Lea Anne has many other ideas for quilts made from the flower block. You’ll find several here. You can use the various blocks to make your own unique quilt, as well.

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!
