• get your Patchwork Petals pattern here and join in on the fun!
Patchwork Petals are fun, modern quilt blocks that make cute pillows, placemats and minis for quilt swaps. Make additional blocks to make a table runner, wall hanging, throw or large quilt (layout ideas included in the pattern). Mix and match blocks! Need a handmade housewarming or hostess gift? This is the perfect pattern! You’ll enjoy making these fully-tested, foundation paper pieced blocks. This pattern is fabric stash friendly! Scraps, fat eighths and fat quarters work great for the petal portions of this pattern. Use prints, solids and/or fussy-cut your favorite fabric for the petals.

Now that you’re all caught up, let’s move on to Block 2, shall we?

Here’s another tip for Block 2:
Use your small scraps left over from the background of Block 1 for Block 2! I store mine in a Talenti gelato container. There are a number of small sections in Block 2. Don’t be intimidated—just piece as you have been doing. These small pieces allow for a smooth curve that looks like it was appliqued. Pretty sneaky, huh?
