Circle of Flowers – WiP

 I recently came across the new Thimble Blossoms patterns. Love. Love love love. Though it was a tough choice between Fireworks and Round & Round.

But Round & Round won.

Circle of Flowers

Doesn’t it look divine in rainbow Color Weave?! 


 There are a lot of HSTs in this block, and a lot of rows to sew together. So the quilt row markers Jane made me came in very handy. I used them to remind me which way to press the seams, so that I could nest them together when it was time to sew.

Row markers

My seams still aren’t all quite perfect, but not too shabby! Loving this block. It’s big – think mine came to 23” unfinished. But bonus of that is you don’t need too many to make a quilt!

First Round and Round block

I’m not sure on the name Round and Round, so I’m going with Circle of Flowers as that’s what it reminds me of.

So now to make a bunch more HSTs. Eventually. There may not be too much sewing happening here over the next few weeks as I’m moving house. So most of my WiP unfortunately will be packing boxes. Nowhere near as pretty, but most necessary.

  15. This is really cool! I've seen small pics of the pattern and thought it would be far more complicated than this. It's really just a double nine-patch with HSTs, huh? Ingenious. :)
