What day is it??? It’s Quilt Block Mania Day! Today I joined in a Block Hop that my friend Carolina Moore puts on. It is something I have wanted to do for some time, so I am excited to be here.  Are you ready for some flower power?? The theme that ties all the blocks on today’s block hop together is floral. A theme that is too good for me to pass up! I started with one flower and ended up with four. The orange part is the top of the flower, or disc flower, and the petals point down. I can see a tiny bee buzzing around the top, bathing in pollen.

I designed this quilt block for Quilt Block Mania. This is flower power.

I am calling this block Flower Power and decided to use scraps from the CoCo fabric line by Michael Miller. I have a few extra fat quarters from the bundle that I used in the last Garden Star quilt I made. This block is a simple and fun block that will brighten up any quilt. Use one in a Sampler Quilt or make one quilt by repeating the block over and over. Just add some sashing to give the flowers some breathing room.

Quilt Block Mania Details:

Each month Carolina puts together a different theme for another set of blocks for Quilt Block Mania. Next month the theme is neighborhood. I would love to hear what type of block you would like to see with that theme. The patterns are only free for the month they were released in. So, hop on over to all the other blocks to get your copy while the getting is good. I would love to hear what your favorite block is, so tell me in the comments below!

I hope you have fun making the Flower Power Block!!

I have been working on a video that shows off a special project I have been working on. It is not directly focused on quilting, but something that supports my quilting fun. It should be live next week, so come back soon!
