    I was looking through some of my quilt magazines trying to find a new pattern. Don't know what, but I'll know it when I see it. For the fabrics I had in mind this isn't it. :(
    Anyway it is from the August 2008 American Patchwork & Quilting magazine. It is an Edyta Sitar pattern and is a 3-d pattern. Not hard, just not what I want for a whole quilt. In the mag. it is a table runner.
    I'll add this to my future scrap quilt/pillow pile!

    It may not have been what you were looking for, but it sure turned out great!

    It'll make a beautiful pillow, or a little throw or wallhanging.

    What a neat idea...sort of like the 10 minute block....instead of the squares inbetween the blocks, looks like a large triangle folded and sewn the same way.....whoa!!! nother idea just popped into my head.

    Yes! That's what it is, a folded triangle between blades/petals. It wasn't difficult, but it was longer than 10 minutes! There are sixteen blades in the block, so lots of chain stitching to do. I did have problems with the pattern for the center not being big enough and I had to cut a new one.

    It is a pretty block. Hope you enjoy it when it moves from the ufo to the finished project whatever you end up making with it.

    Why not make it the focal point of the quilt and build something equally as beautiful and compatible around it. I could never send that one to the scrap pile.

    The fabrics used in this were from the scrap pile. It would have to be part of a scrap quilt, as there is very little of the orange and yellow left. Someday...
