A Pocket Full of Posies

Last time I posted, I had just finished up this scrappy, patchwork pillow inspired by Twin Fibers inpirational finish inspired by Camille Roskelley.

Well, I love the block so much, I made two more.

Only these are bigger and have a twist to them.
When finished, they will measure 20" x 20".
That's a very big block. 

Dipping into my scrap baskets again, this time I cut my "petals" 3" x 3" and used 1 1/2" x 1 1/2" for the points.  I had a couple of hexagons lying around (I mean really, who doesn't?) and plopped one down in the middle of the yellow center.
I kinda liked that!

(purple center)

(pink center)

This size block was a lot easier on the fingers when pressing!
I'm having so much fun going through my scraps and taking trips down Memory Lane.
Do you do that?
See a piece of fabric and think, "I know what that is!  I know where I got it!  I LOVE that fabric!"

Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for some Friday eye candy ala quiltey finishes for the week.
