Sewcialites 2: (Block 1)
Time for a look at block 1 of the Sewcialites Free Block of the Week hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. Block 1 is “Perennial” by Bev McCullough of Flamingo Toes. Be sure to visit her blog and give her some love.
Block 1 “Perennial” in Country Rose fabric
This block is so unusual and sweet. I wanted to fashion it to look like a flower so I have the soft pink petals, rosy center, and leafy corners using Country Rose fabric. While this block uses a beginner “easy corner triangle” technique, there are many pieces and steps. I would classify it as “intermediate” skill level.
Alternate in Christmas Eve Fabric
I couldn’t help it. I had to mock it up using my upcoming Christmas Eve collection (arriving to shops May 2023). I thought it looked like a fancy little peppermint in Christmas prints. Ooh I just may need to make this one for real!
