The Center

The very center of Wildflower Woods is sewn together.


I like the way the corners are sewn onto the very center. You make triangles and the narrow border is sewn onto the top. Two of the triangles were sewn onto the inside center while the red triangles were sewn onto the other block triangles. Then you sew a long seam attaching them.

It looks complicated but it isn't.

The narrow border doesn't completely surround the inside center, the red triangle fits into the corners. I really like that idea, I'll have to remember that for the future.

I did make a change to the Forest Path blocks (pinwheel blocks) in the corners of the center triangles. I changed the border on those blocks to fabric I liked better. I had made a mistake when I cut the original print and had to go with a different one. The floral border was left over from cutting the narrow borders from the striped fabric.

This center measures 58.5" which is my own unique measurement, not the same size as the pattern. I've had a few challenges along the way.

I know it has been rather boring viewing the individual blocks as they were sewn but they look so much better all sewn together.

I love how this quilt looks. It is amazing how individual blocks can come together to make something quite intricate looking.

A little late in commenting. That is an interesting way but makes sense when putting a medallion on point. This is a different color for you. Nice quilt!
