Patchwork Petals sewing party: block 4

We made it to Block 4, the final block, of the Patchwork Petals quilt!

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.

The trickiest part of Block 4 is aligning the mini petals, but don’t sweat it! I reviewed my tip for positioning pinning to help with this alignment when Mathew and I reviewed Block 2.
