Good morning cute people!
It's time to
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!
