BLOOM Sew Along - Week Eleven - Block Eleven!!

Good morning cute people!
It's time to 
BLOOM

We are really making good progress on our quilt and all of you should be getting pretty darn fast in preparing your blocks for appliqué:)
I love seeing everyones blocks on 

It makes me so happy!!!


That being said...
it's never too late to start.
to get your templates 
so you can have fun with us too!


Today we will be blooming block eleven:)


These are my fabrics this week for the appliqués.
We will be using
A-12 and A-24
Sew Simple Shapes


From both fabric and Pellon:
Cut 1 - 4" x 5" for tulip
Cut 2 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" for leaves

From fabric only:
Cut a 9" square for background 
and prepare a 5" long stem.

1. Trace around the shapes onto Pellon.
2. Place Pellon onto fabric, sew on traced line and trim.
3. Cut an "X" into Pellon only for turning.
4. Turn, shape using the Clover turning tool and press.


Cut the two "cleavage" on the tulip top so that it will lie flat when turning.
Be careful not to cut into your sewing.


Press your background fabric in half like this.


Glue or pin baste your stem and tulip down the center line.


Place the center of the tulip 1 1/4" down
 from the top edge of your background.


And your leaves 1 1/4" from the side edge as well.


I think that these leaves look cute overlapping the stem center:)
Now that your block is basted...
it's time to appliqué!


When you are finished...trim your block to 8 1/2" square
 and cut your border strips and squares.


Sew your block together and take a cute photo.
Post it on 
 so we can all admire it!

Thank you from the bottom of my heart 
for participating in my BLOOM Sew Along...
we are halfway through it and
 I am having so much fun sewing with you!

Just love your designs and blocks. Will you be doing a book with all the companion blocks for Farm Girl? That would be awesome.
