The flowers today all use Leaf Sashing 6 inch to make 14 inch blocks (finished size).
This is fun, because there are so many options with Inklingo.
In fact, there are so many possible 6 inch blocks that I created 2 special pages on the website with links to the shape collections.
(“6 inch blocks” is a heading near the top of the Shop page.)

We set it to the William Tell Overture because we find the options so exciting.
You can do this! Yes, you can!
Of course, the beauty of all of this is that no matter what flowers you choose, you can actually start and finish the quilts. It is so much easier when you print the shapes on fabric with Inklingo!
The curves of the 6 inch size are easy to machine piece, but you can hand piece or appliqué with Inklingo, if you prefer.
Lately, we seem to have more ideas than time, but there is some good stuff coming next. You can subscribe to get an email to be sure you don’t miss anything good (right sidebar).
“Email Jail” or Email Holiday?
I have been really bad about acknowledging comments on the blog lately unless there was a specific question. I am going to try to do better. Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville was the first person I heard talk about being in “email jail.” I’m in it.
This week Bonnie has a brand new book out called String Fling, and it is full of inspiring designs. I admire Bonnie and envy her energy. I can hardly wait to see her latest. (Please tell her I sent you!)
Use the video to plant flowers everywhere!
As usual, we hope you will tell your friends about our flower blocks. If you have a blog or website, you can embed the YouTube video too. (Click on Share.)
We are celebrating Canada Day today and the weather is perfect if you like it sunny in the low 80s (28c) with a light breeze. The front porch is shady and oh, so inviting. Do I have to get out of email jail first? I might just sew. We’ll see . . .
Thank you for visiting!
