My Tested Blocks
My group tested 13 of the 100 Blocks. We randomly received patterns and didn’t know (and had no choice) as to which techniques we would be testing. All Blocks finish to 12” square (12-1/2” unfinished).
Melissa Peda – Block #711 – Flower Power (Appliqué)
Check out her blog for pictures of this block using several different fabrics. It is interesting how different colors/fabrics affect how this block looks.
This is a fun applique block that can have different personalities dependent on the fabrics you choose. I can see it as a pillow, wall hanging, or center medallion on a quilt. Melissa shows it as a fun placemat.
It made me think of Sunflowers! So, here is the block that I made.
I’ve got so much more to share, but for now, why don’t you check out the Featured Designers. Maybe you’ll find a block you might want to make! Sign up on their Blogs and you may win a copy of Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks, Volume #8.
Join me tomorrow and I’ll share more of the blocks I’ve made.
