Farmhouse Friends “Just Flowers” Stitch-Along Block #12 – Hydrangeas

Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend. I’m excited to say that it’s finally it’s my turn to post my block for this year’s Farmhouse Friends “Just Flowers” Stitch-Along. I saw all of the other blocks and knew these hydrangeas had to be BLUE! Just look at these hand-dyed appliquéd flowers. They almost look real with all the light and dark variations of color in the wool. I know there are a lot of flowers here, but look at the results! There’s also a lot of cutting, but trust me it’s worth it. Plus, this block is super easy to stitch so you’ll save yourself some time there!

As you can see I also added the date on my block, which is always a fun addition. Ready to make yours? We have several options available for this block! Download and print your own block for FREE by hitting the link below!


I really had a lot of fun with this block – and I have to say I’m pretty proud of it, which is why I love sharing it with all of you! No printer? No problem! You can purchase a printed version of the pattern for a small charge of $5.00! Click the link below to order your printed pattern now!

    Love, love, love your block! It would be lovely as a table runner as well, with one bouquet on each end.

    I am saving up all the blocks in emails till I see final layout. I have so many projects I must do but if I live this one I will add it to the every growing list , like most of the wool box projects. Lol. I just love all these stitch alongs and I think this group is my favorite. The designers are the best and are the ones I always buy things from. Thanks for all this group does for us.

    I love the block! My hydrangea are just beginning to leaf out so the blooms in the block will be a good substitute.

    I have lace cap hydrangeas in my circle but had to cut them back last fall as they were branching over the drive & if we had snow hubby would be plowing into them. They’re beginning to leaf out now so we’ll have to wait to see about blooms. I haven’t seen the other blocks on this SAL but I’ll be copying your pattern.

    Such a BEAUTIFUL design! Thank you so much.

    My friend and I visited your new store yesterday. I can’t tell you how helpful Luke was. The information he shared with us was so informative. We were so busy learning from Luke that we didn’t get our shopping finished so now we are planning on a return trip. The kit for this block is now on my shopping list.

    Blessings to all of the Primitive Gatherings family.
