As I have mentioned a few times now, I really can’t stop designing blocks to complement those found in Petal + Stem. There are just so many possibilities! Last week, I was astounded by the love for my little ant…which was the oddest subject of a block design and yet has so much character that I fell in love with him too.
I have just finished this block set with a Bee and Ladybug to add a bit of fancy to your quilts. They would work in so well in the Whimsy Garden quilt from my book, Petal + Stem.
Can’t you picture them flying through the flowers? The pattern set includes both the Bee and Ladybug as a 6″ block and a 10″ block. The 6″ blocks are compatible with Petal + Stem layouts. The 10″ size can work in with any of my garden themed 10″ blocks that I designed several years ago.
For example, can’t you picture the bee block with my Bee Skep?
I hope you see lots of possibilities for these designs! I’ve designed a new quilt top layout that incorporates these new blocks plus several blocks from Petal + Stem and I will be sharing it as a free pattern in mid May.
