So many flowers are blooming in our Dandy Drive quiltalong. It’s fun to see your colors and combos. We have another fun giveaway this week so read on for details.

There are quite a few pieces to the stem because I wanted easy sewing with no tricky angles or ruler gymnastics. Here’s a pic of the back of a stem:

That’s my Daylight Sayings Time print in lemon as the background for this block. It makes me smile every time I see it.
This week, if you share a photo of your flower with a stem, you’ll be entered to win a fat quarter bundle of Pat’s Sunday Drive batiks.
