April Showers Mystery Quilt: Week 3 Flowers

I think Spring and Summer have finally arrived here in the Maryland area.  Still many of you, especially in Minnesota, Mother Nature just wants you to stay in winter mode a little longer.  I hope the April Showers Mystery Quilt project is helping you out of those winter blues and help you start thinking about those spring flowers popping up everywhere.

Week 3 is here, Kari Schell and I continue the collaboration of showing you how to design and piece the April Shower Mystery Quilt.

If you have missed any of my blog posts on how to piece, you can catch up with the series here:

Week 1 Umbrellas
Week 2 Raindrops

Today, we will bring some color to your quilt top with some flowers and finish assembling our quilt top.

I have to omit that Kari Schell, On the Point Quilter, has been challenging me each week with all the blocks she has designed for this mystery quilt in EQ8.  Each of the blocks continues to work off the Studio 180 Design, Corner Beam® Tool.  You definitely will get lots of practice making the Corner Beam blocks.

Week 3 Flowers
The Flower blocks are very similar to last week's raindrop blocks, except how you make the center block for the Corner Beam, then the rest of the steps are identical.

Be sure to check out how Kari designs the blocks in EQ8, Here. If you would like to learn how to develop these blocks in EQ8, visit her posts here, Week 1 and Week 2.

Make sure you watch the video tutorial here and download the pattern Here.
