Traditional Tuesday - Block 51


Block 51 - Posy
I think this is the cutest little block I've ever seen (if I do say so myself!). I think a little girl's retro-style quilt done in 70s calicoes would be so wonderful. It could also make a nice addition to a row quilt or even a border. Three done in different sizes could be an alternative block to this. Whatever works for you!

I haven't used my repro 70s calicoes in a while and they were calling me from the shelf! I joined them with a Moda marble blue and a solid Kona gold (don't know which color exactly).
Cut the background over-sized. Prepare the shapes from the pattern found here. Applique in the method of your choice and trim the block to 6 1/2".
