Midnight Posies Block 9 – Forget Me Not

This delicate flower is one of my favorites. My wedding china has little forget-me-nots on it and I have always loved those dishes! P9300143P9300141

So this months block of the month features this sweet little flower in a simple block. No special techniques are needed for this month’s flower, it is as simple as the flower it is inspired by.

The quarter square triangles are easy to make and the block is a simple nine-patch. After last month’s BIG triangles this one ought to seem like a snap!block 9 forget me not

Just like my wedding china, I hope you fall in love with this block and with the Midnight Posies Quilt. I can’t wait to see pictures of the blocks you are making!! Please send me pictures when you get your block made.

My friend and pattern tester Kathi, sent me this picture of her finished quilt. Midnight posies1 She used hand dyes left over from another project. She swears she hates applique and was none too happy about doing the fused applique border, but I think you will agree with me that she did a great job on it. And if a confirmed “applique hater” can do it I am sure you can as well.

Hope you enjoy this months Forget Me Not block!!

PS. The block instructions for this block call it an Aster instead of a Forget-Me-Not. I changed the name of the flower when I revised the block but forgot to change the name on the pattern. Hope that is not too confusing. :-)


  1. No problem with the name- a rose is still a rose etc.
    I have got a cousin doing this with me, & we agree your instructions are great. Love this quilt.

  2. What an inspiration!! I'm new to the quilt passion but I feel like starting this project right now. Looking forward to next block.


I'd love to know what you think! Thanks for sharing your ideas.
