Clam Flower #5 - Part 1

I absolutely adore the leaves on this flower.  In my original drawing the leaf you see was about an inch wide at the left.  I decided it was too wide to be one piece of fabric.  So I drew an accent line.  Then randomly I decided to add two bumps to it.  So fun!  I love the result.  

While I was picking fabric for this quilt I decided I wanted the leaf to be dots so that the bumps made sense.  I am in love with the way it turned out.  I want to do it again soon!

All of Layer 1

The back of layer 1.  If you look closely you can see that the light blue was stitched in a smaller stitch size than the green to keep the emphasis on the green fabric.

I hope you get to quilt today!


  1. Beautiful like everything you do. If I look closely at the image you use small blanket stitches?

  2. Wonderful block! Oh I would be proud of that leaf's wonderful with the bumps and the use of the dot fabric. I adore brights and this block really sings to me. Thanks for linking up to Wednesday Wait Loss.
