For one flower, you need
2 -- 5" squares of fabric 1
2 -- 5" squares of fabric 2
1 -- 4" square for center
4 -- 2.5" squares of background
Sew each background square onto one corner of your four 5" squares. Trim seam to 1/4" and press toward the background color

Well, I finally am finishing up a quilt made from these blocks. I still have to do the binding, but wanted to share; I'M SO GLAD TO BE (nearly) DONE! It's king sized, so it was quite a challenge to quilt on my regular sewing machine, even though I have one with a large harp space.

I used Warm & Natural batting. It's a bit heavy as it's got so many (thousands,
it seemed!) seam allowances enclosed so it's nice to be able to "change" the quilt
by just turning it over.
This one is "Buggy Wheels". I used white sashing and white binding on this side.

I never dreamed that it would use up so many scraps, but my scrap drawers are now empty and I am one happy camper! It's big 120" by 120" and heavy, which will be wonderful come winter time. It's pieced with a QAYG method. Thanks Postal

I just finished piecing this top this afternoon. It's for my youngest son's best bud's baby sister - who was born cough-last December-cough. Yeah, it's a bit late...
The pattern for the dogs is from the Dare to be Square book. The original pattern makes a S shaped dog on the front of the quilt which would be fabulous if the baby's name began with a S but it begins with

I need a pattern that tells me how much fabric I'll need in each colour and the finished size
I purchased a Animal Spirits Mixed Block panel to make a quilt. Blocke range in size from 3" x 3" to 7 1/4" x 6" . How do I figure out what size to make my blocks? I want to do a wall hanging or maybe a lap quilt.
