I love the colors in this pillow! I used the Sunflower block from my book, Petal + Stem but I didn’t stick with traditional yellow petals and brown center. I came up with a fanciful color scheme based on the pretty blue floral print by Katrina Roccella for Art Gallery Fabrics. Her collection is called Earthen. The darker blue at the base of the petals is Rashida Coleman Hale’s Speckled, another new favorite. It’s quilted in a 1″ grid.
If you are intimidated by the thought of paper piecing a whole quilt, a pillow might be a great way to sew a few of your favorite flower blocks from Petal + Stem and turn them into a finished project quickly!
