    These are really just 10-minute blocks (see http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-81908-1.htm) but starting with what I'll call a 1/4 snowball.

    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 (picture 2). This makes a 1/4 snowball block

    Arrange the 4 "petals" as shown in picture 3 below.

    Proceed with the instructions from the tutorial above. There are just 2 differences:

    1) my middle square is smaller than my 4 petals
    2) you have to be careful about the orientation of the 4 petals, to keep them in the pinwheel.

    The blocks should square up to 9.5 inches (9 inches finished)

    I think I like these better than the 10 min. block.

    Thank you so much. It's always fun when someone thinks up a new way to do a technique. I bookmarked and printed out.

    Looking for flower to hand applique pattern. Nothing too tedious with the skinny stems. Anybody have one to share.
    Thanks,
    Jean

    Thank you for that idea, I am going to make them smaller and do a small mini quilt top with them. Which I can see as a flower garden with the batiks. Again thank you really cute
    Have a Blessed day

    The tut was great, but---do you applique the center sq on or top stitch or what? Guess I'm a little slow on this one.
