Spring is blooming in these Posy Pots for paper piecing
Select terra cotta colored fabric (take a shard of an actual planting pot to the fabric store with you) for the pots. Then, gather up all of your flower print scraps to create a small quilt. Or, the three-inch by five and a half-inch Posy Pots could make a striking border for a springtime quilt.
You can print this foundation for the Posy Pot right from this site.
The finished block is supposed to be 3-inches by 5 1/2-inches, however different computers and different printers may give you different sizes. Print multiple copies so you have plenty of foundations. Or, copy the foundation block on a copier. Always use your original, don't make copies of copies (they can get smaller and smaller).
Individuals may copy this foundation pattern for their own personal use,
but not for distribution or sale. Write to me and tell me what you would like to do with the patterns. We can probably work something out. Thank you.
Here is a larger Posy Pot Quilt made by Ann Hussey of Maine in 1996. Ann participated in a Posy Pot block exchange which I hosted. The large blocks had three pots across and were 18-inches by 11-inches. In the new smaller paper pieced version of the Posy Pot (above) a lip has been added to the pot.
