Dancing Flowers Cornerstones

I’ve had lots of comments on the layout I’m using for Dancing Flowers.

Thank you.

But I can’t claim all of the credit. EQ6 helped tremendously with the cornerstones. In EQ the cornerstone is called French Knot Corner. I’ve only used 2 colors and the background instead of 3, and I took out the fiddly diagonal seams and partial seaming, reducing the number of pieces to 24. Even so, the 4 cornerstones took me about 2 1/2 hours – not including the time spent on cutting the fabric. These are cute, but I’m so glad the ones on the quilt are going to be twice as large.

Way back when…even before I received the Black and Bright swap blocks, I thought I’d set the blocks in 4 strips and alternate the pieced strips with narrow strips with applique flowers. I got as far as cutting out the flowers for the quilt before deciding it would make the quilt too busy, not to mention “I don’t do applique”. Anyway Dancing Flowers was my test project and will become a wall hanging.

  1. Oh, that’s how the flowers will be used. Both will look great when done! Keep up the good work!
