Basic Skills Necessary:

  • Paper piecing

Pattern Description:

The pale blue flax is such a pretty flower, simple and beautiful. Irish Flax quilt pattern makes a 10 inch x 10 inch stylized flax quilt block.

There are two patterns - one with paper piecing only and one that involves y-seam. The resulting blocks look slightly different.

I wanted to design these blocks to have an old-world stained glass window pane look. I added the extra piecing on each side of the blocks, but they can easily be substituted with a single piece of fabric for simplicity. Each center flower blocks are 6.5" x 8.5" with seam allowance and the overall block measures 10" x 10".

I made this pattern as part of a Wall hanging - Flowers Of The United Kingdom
Other patterns in the series are -
Welsh Daffodil
English Rose
Scottish Thistle

It is perfect for stand-alone projects such as a wall hanging, pillow, bag, etc. It could, of course, just as easily can be incorporated into a larger quilt.

The pattern for this paper pieced quilt block is made and tested by me. It is in color and clearly numbered. A diagram is also provided in the pattern. The finished block measures 10 inch x 10 inch.
