OMG - Wire Flower Sew Along

It's time for the first One Monthly Goal of 2019.  OMG is a great opportunity to stay focused on projects...and the bonus is that there are prizes.

I signed up for the Wire Flower Sew Along hosted by Karen @ Karen Lewis Textiles.  Groups are made up of nine people, and everyone makes a Wire Flower for everyone in their group based on their colour preferences.

The first one took me about 2.5 hours.  It's not a hard pattern, but there are several tiny, fiddly pieces.

The second one took a little under 2 hours.  Since I'm using the same background for all my blocks, I was able to pre-cut some fabric to speed up the sewing process.

My goal is to finish the remaining seven blocks.


  1. Those flowers are interesting, the more I look at them the more I want to make one. It's a good thing you like paper piecing so much.

  2. There's something oddly satisfying about these flowers. I haven't made any yet, but it's entirely possible I will before long :)

  3. I really love the idea of this sew along. I hope that the process continues to go faster as you work on the blocks and it will be fun to see the assortment you create and receive! Also: you are rocking paper piecing these days!!!

  4. What an interesting sew-along! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project!

  5. I love the look of these sweet flowers and considered making some of my own ... until I read it took you hours to make one. Yikes! I'll have to live vicariously through your quilty accomplishments on this one. ; )
