Octagon Flowers

I've been wanting to try something different for a while, so when I saw a quilt with hexagon flowers, I decided to 'tweak' it a little and this flower looking pattern was the result.

This block is actually an octagon with a 1/4 of the background on each corner. The program won't let me create other shapes - only squares. 

The block measures 6" (16cm) and is so easy it's childs play. There are only 2 segments in each block - so that means quick and easy (works for me!). There are NO points coming together in the middle on this block.

All blocks are available at my Craftsy Shop.

 Here are 2 different mini quilt ideas. The one on the right has an extra piece that looks almost like a shadow on the flower.

Both piecing patterns for the flower are in the same pattern info sheet.

 The E-Book Drive really needs some help. Please consider helping out by buying one of the books. The proceeds from October will go to BCancer Awareness. The E-Book Page is on the top bar of the Blog.

Thank you.

 These lovely little tags can be printed out and attached to a gift you have made. They are Free and available on Craftsy.

The Quilt Art Designs Flickr Pool would love to share your photos of blocks you have made using our patterns. Please share some with us.....  Thanks.
