My Winner and a Few More Blocks

My winner in the Benartex Bali Blog Hop fat quarter giveaway was Rosa. I'm still waiting for her to contact me. I give winners 48 hours and then I move on to second choice! Rosa - please phone home!

I plan on tallying up the votes, but because I was on the road I couldn't do it during the hop. You will see more of these blocks and shapes.

Here is what I did with that block I shared. And then I cut a few more diamonds and another block appeared. Like I said - I'm stuck on this shape!

First, the Daffodil block with a small orange hexagon appliqued to the center. This is fusible, raw edge applique (the easiest and quickest approach). As soon as I covered up the center I realized I had created a Grandmother's Flower Garden block!

Daffodil with bright center
Then I thought about cutting diamonds without slicing off one end. It was a simple star pattern. But when you add the same orange hexagon in the center, it becomes the Daffodil block I really had in mind in the first place (honest; that's true!)

Another version of my Daffodil block
Congratulations to Rosa. And many thanks to all of you - all 171 of you - who sent in your votes for my 3 blocks made using that jewel shape.

Stay tuned for another tutorial coming up using these diamonds in a very modern way. That's all I can say!

  4. Both are lovely, and that second one goes right along with Barbara Brackman's Hexathon, if you're using William Morris prints. =)
