I’ve been planning to make a Seed Packet block for my paper pieced garden block series from the start but was having a hard time working it out in my mind. Things finally clicked and I made some decisions and I am happy with it! I am calling this block simply “Seed Packets.” As you can see, I chose Early Peas and Heirloom Tomato. If the piecing looks too complicated, you could easily modify this pattern by replacing the paper pieced vegetables with a large flower or vegetable from a fabric print and modifying the seed name accordingly.
Truthfully, I chose peas for one packet because I love an excuse to use buttons. I thought I might line 4-5 buttons up in a row to be the peas in the pod. I think it looks fine without it but it might be even more fun with the buttons. Sadly, I only have one button that is the perfect color match. I am working on rectifying that!
The background fabric for this block is of course the new Vintage Modern Cottage Pebble that I cut up as soon as I got it into my hot little hands.
I am working on getting this pattern ready for sale soon. If you are interested in the other patterns from this series, “Pick Violets” is a free download from my sidebar and the others are in my Etsy shop as well as Craftsy where you can download them instantly.
