Flowers Quilt

I am sharing a picture of the "Stocks" block for the "Fowers" quilt Cathy and I are working on.  A tall skinny block.  I have never heard of a stock plant but just looked it up and there is.  I do not have a green thumb for growing flowers.


Cathy and I are nearing the end of the applique blocks for this quilt.  I have started sewing the half square triangle units for the setting and there are lots of them.

Take a peek at Cathy's block here.

I've never heard of a stock plant either, but if it's anything like your block, it's very pretty. I looked at Cathy's too.... can't wait to see your finished quilts!

Cathy said...

Karen I love the fabrics you used. Can't wait to see you next blocks. Hugs

Stock was grown for seed in my home town. It is so delightfully fragrant and beautiful to look at too. Great block.

No entiendo de plantas, sólo sé decir si me gusta un color u otro aunque me encantan las margaritas en todos los colores y las rosas.

Tu bloque es precioso y me gusta las telas que has usado.

Buen fin de semana.

Lovely block - and Stock is a lovely plant - very heady and fragrant!

QUILTING IS BLISSFUL, DI said...

Now that Stock Plant is a new one on me too--but I like your block and I do not have a green thumb either with inside plants at least--and I love plants!!!
enjoy the moments, di

That is a beautiful block on it's own. I need to decide on some projects to start for Christmas.

I like the block a lot. The colors are great. Such interesting fabric for leaves. And the background adds interest too but not too much to detract. Your header sunflowers make me happy. What's not to like about a cheerful sunflower?

Kyle said...

Another completion! That's a great background you chose.

Danice said...

Love that block with the orange. Looking forward to seeing the completed quilt :)

Your block is very pretty and does look like stock. Stock I saw grown as a filler plant to be used in large bouquets to fill in spaces. . Back in the late 60's my husband was stationed at Oxnard AFB, California and they grew stock in large fields and we would pass them and the beautiful fregrance would take your breath away.

I love it, Karen. I need to get a few things off my table, then I'm going to start a new applique project.

Susan said...

Another lovely block. These are all going to be so nice together.

I think the shape of this block makes it quite charming!

Stock plants in real life are kind of ugly, but they smell terrific! I think that's the main reason people grow them. Anyway . . . it certainly looks beautiful in the quilt interpretation!

Beautiful block! I used to work in a florist, so I'm familiar with stock. Aside from being pretty to look at, it has a VERY strong spicy sweet aroma to it.

Lori said...

I've heard of that flower. Love your block!

Jeanna said...

That is a nice block! I also love the basket of sunflowers in your header.

Colleen said...

Love the colors of the block! So nice!

Stock flowers are beautifully fragrant!

Don't you think "stocks" is an unusual name for flowers? I like the colors you used for yours.
