I have no idea the name of the block. I just referred to it as the 'flower quilt'. That's what I put on the label. I failed to get a pic of it before it was shipped off of the pretty burgundy border and label. It went to a charity who only requested blocks. A LA was on site to finish the quilts so I'll bet they do pretty feather quilting in it. I loved the pieced back of large flying geese flying across it horizontally and vertically in homey fabrics (done a long time ago). It was for WWP and goes to Germany to the soldiers there. I'll post pics how they finished it when I receive the pictures from them. I sent a completed quilt and 3 quilt tops plus this almost finished one. I have a pic in its early stages and then the final. Thank you for looking!
    I just love it.I like all the scrappy ones for all the different colors and patterns.Keep up the good work

    Thanks so much for the tutorial. This looks like a good way to use my scraps - they seem to mount up =

    Thank-you for sharing this with us. I'm sitting in a hotel room waiting for DH's meetings to end. Now I want to go home and sew! I have a bin of 4 1/2" and 2 1/2" strips cut and this will be perfect. I love it!

    Your Flower Quilt is really beautiful!

    Thanks for sharing this quilt and creating the tutorial! It is just a great way to use scraps. Last year a little old lady (80 years old) advertised cutting squares for a small price and I took her up on it. I gave her a lot of fabric and she cut squares in different sizes from 1 1/2 to 5 1/2. There was a lot and I have been looking for the perfect quilt to make with them. I don't have to do much cutting for this one. I even have the white ones for the background! Yeah!!!!

    I would definitely make that. It's great you'd be willing to post a mini tute. I certainly can't look at something and then make it. My mom had that gene, but alas, it missed me. That is a talent I would do anything to have.

    Your quilt is beautiful and I can't wait until I can get more info on it. I would love to make it.

    Wish I could say I didn't need a pattern...have spent w-a-a-a-a-y too much money on patterns!!! Your quilt is a great scrappy. Thanks for sharing the pattern.

    Now that looks like a pattern I could use for one of the scrap quilts I am not working on.

    Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments! For those looking for the mini-tut, it's on page 4. Here's the link for you: (scroll half-way down the page and you'll see it)

    http://www.quiltingboard.com/picture...t175057-4.html

    ****one thing I thought about I forgot to mention is that the outer edges of the quilt are plugged in with a white 4.5" square where normally a new flower color would start off the beginning of the next row. Therefore, when doing the long vertical strips on the top row of the quilt, you will actually be starting off with 2, not 1, white 4.5" squares. Refer to the outside edges of her quilt pic or mine on the first page to see how we plugged those areas in with a white square. You will probably want to do the same!

    ****also, the width dimension I forgot to add 4" to so it should be fin.@53.5"

    Am excited about seeing your flower quilt! Be sure and post pics! We all would love to see how you each do them! Your very welcome for the instructions!!
