This block is very different from the others in this series -- so far. This Daffodil Block is a giant Half Square Triangle! Well, one half of it is, and the other half is a pieced triangle made up of smaller pieced traingles. Ok, that sounds difficult, but it is made in rows and is very easy to do.
Anyway, we are almost ready to begin the last row of blocks, and each of these combine a series of techniques we have learned in the preceding blocks to make some really stunning flowers that are – as always in my patterns – easier to make than they appear.
I would love to have your feedback on my directions. As I am preparing to publish this pattern, it would be great to know what you think about the directions for these blocks. Was it easy to follow? Could I have explained techniques more clearly? Would additional pictures help? Was there more directions than you needed? Post a comment and I will draw a winner from among the comments to receive my September Morning Glory and Asters Table Runner Pattern –Free!
Thanks for leaving a comment and for doing this Block of the Month. I will pull a name at random from among those leaving comments on Sept 15 for the pattern winner.
I love this quilt with all the color ranges. I am waiting for blocks 9, 10, 11 and 12 so that I can make this quilt. So far the instructions are very easy to follow. The pictures are a great help in putting the pieces together. Hope you do more free block of the month quilts.ReplyDelete
I would love to win your new pattern...love all of the Midnight Posies...so kind of you to make them free to us! Have a great day!ReplyDelete

The description says Block 9 , but the download was Block 8 - Daffodil - did I miss something?ReplyDelete
OOPS. . .you are so right anonymous! I put the wrong number up there. I have corrected it now. This is block 8, the daffodil. Thanks so much for drawing that to my attention. I should not post these things late at night, should I. HeheheReplyDelete
Block 8 takes me to a blank page .. no download. I don't see anything about Block 9.ReplyDelete
Your instructions are perfect. I am completing the blocks as you post them. I love them. Thank you.ReplyDelete
The instructions are very easy to follow and corect. I love your pattern und enjoy it.
Greeting from Germany
Reeze, Midnigth Posies is a wonderful quilt, your directions are perfect, easy to understand and to follow. I'm anxious about the flowers applique to the borders. Thanks for sharing this pattern as a BOM. I'll love if my name was picked for the September Morning Glory and Asters Table Runner Pattern. Thank you for this great opportunity.ReplyDelete

These are fabulous patterns, the directions are clear and concise, great for beginner and experienced quilters. Nothing needs to be added or changed-just the right amount of information is included. I complete each one as it is posted and was getting a little 'anxious' as the latest one was not posted before I left for the long weekend (silly thing to get 'anxious' over, I know). Thank you for doing these each month. ClaireReplyDelete
Your instructions are wonderful, & I am enjoying this, as it really appealed to me, with it's bright colours, & clear design.ReplyDelete

I love the look of the table runner too! Hope I win!
I look forward to receiving the directions for the next block at the first of every month. Love the colorful blocks and the directions are easy to follow especially with the photos. Very well presented. PatReplyDelete
Con respecto a las instrucciones debo decir que son claras y precisas, los esquemas están comprensibles en especial para los que no hablamos su idioma, recien estoy haciendo el seis, pero he guardado patrones para completarla. Este misterio es fabuloso. Atentamente. MartaReplyDelete

Ha Ha. I am laughing at myself because I missed your give away! As you know my friend and I are working on the midnight posie quilt and were so excited to get block 8 that we just printed the pattern and started quilting...I didnt read the entire post until day! Oh well, See you next month. We have finally caught up with you on this quilt and are having a great time. One way we are making the quilt bigger is we are sewing two of each block. Thanks again!ReplyDelete
I'm a beginning quilter, but your descriptions are easy to follow for me. Thank you for sharing these patterns!ReplyDelete
