Visit your favorite quilt shop or
search online for the
Cozy Christmas Quilt Kit
This is our block for this week
These are my fabric choices
for the appliqués.
If you haven't done so...
to download the cutting guide
And cut all of your
interfacing and fabric pieces
according to the guide.
Don't forget to cut your
background 7" x 7" square.
Also cut a 1" wide strip...
And prepare the bias tape
for the center knot on the bow:)
Trace your shapes onto the interfacing.
Remember to trace one of the
B-13 shapes in reverse
just like I showed you
in the week one video.
Stitch onto your tracing lines and trim.
If you would like to see the video again
or any of the tutorials for the first three blocks...
I have added a link to each post right here
on my blog on the right sidebar.
Just scroll down until you see the week
that you want to view and click on it.
You will need to be viewing the
full web version
of my blog to see the icons on the right.
Make one clip in each "cleavage area" on the wreath shape.
After trimming your B-13 pieces
you will need to clip the
INSIDE CURVE section only.
Clip right to the stitches
but not into the stitches.
Because of this stitching...
your appliqué piece will lie flat
after turning it right side out...
Lay the wreath out onto your
background square and position it
3/4" down from the top.
Now place the circle in the center.
I like to use the markings on my template
to help with the centering:)
Place the bow ties so that they are 3/4"up from the bottom edge.
Press your bias tape under on the
2 remaining raw edges like this.
This will be the last piece that you appliqué:)
After appliqueing the wreath
and the center circle...
I removed the bow pieces
so that I could do the ties first...
And then finished up the bow:)
I trimmed up my block to 6 1/2" square and
I sewed the little bells borders on.
Time for the
***You may choose to do this part
after your quilt is quilted***
I laid out my buttons and
took a photo on my iPhone
so that I wouldn't forget
what color went where.
I used 6 strands of matching
to sew each button on.
I added the flying geese and
half square triangles on...
and my cozy wreath is decorated!
I love this little wreath:)
we will build a snowman!
