Welcome to Week 4 of the Flower Market Sew-A-Long, where we will be making Flower 4. This is a great way to complete this quilt top. We will be showing you step by step photos. There is also a video at the end of this tutorial with more Flower 4 instructions.
The quilt measures 62″ x 74″. You will need a Fat Quarter bundle of Daisy Mae, 4 1/4 yards of white Country Confetti, 3/4 yards of binding and the Flower Market Pattern. All of these are available through your favorite quilt shop. You can also see everything you will need on our website here.
Note to self: if you spray starch all your fabric before cutting you will be thrilled with the final look of your block.
Prepare all your pieces for Flower 4. Cut and label all pieces.
Note to self: when using directional fabric, make sure to have the fabric in the direction you would like it to look finished. This means to place your corner squares and sew in the correct direction.
Using the stitch and flip method, press squares or draw a line corner to corner on the background color squares. Place in each corner and sew on the diagonal line.
Trim corners, leaving a 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seams to the outsides.
Sew the middle of the flower. Sew small rectangles to each side. Sew larger rectangles to opposite sides. Press seams to the outside.
Sew the top and bottom sections to the middle of the flower. This completes the top of the flower.
Sew Leaf Type 2. Using the stitch and flip method, press squares or draw a line corner to corner on the background color squares. Place the correct size of squares in each corner of the rectangles and sew on the diagonal line. Make 2 left leaves and 2 right leaves.
Trim corners, leaving 1/4″ seam allowance. Press seams to the outside.
Sew the leaf sections together. Sew the right leaf section to the stem. Press seam towards stem. Sew the left leaf section to the stem. Press seam towards stem.
Sew the top of the flower to the leaf section. Press seam.
We hope you are loving sewing along with us. Enjoy the video for Flower 4.
