Let's Bake Sew Along - Week Six!!

Today is week six of our sew along...
and that means we have 
made it to the halfway point.


We are  making great progress on our
 Let's Bake Quilt...
 and I love seeing everyones photos
 on the Instagram hashtag page:

First block recipe today is the
 Kitchen Scale

You will nee E7 Sew Simple Shape
 for the scale...
and E11 Sew Simple Shape
 for the dial.

Run the 1" strip through the
 1/2" bias tape maker

Sew your pieces...
trim...turn...shape and press!

Cut the short strip 1 1/2" long 
and press under the ends of the 
other strip to measure 4" long.

Place your scale in the center 
of your background square and 
1" up from the bottom edge.

Glue baste the top strip 1" down 
from the top edge.

Use the pattern on page 12 
of the sew along guide and 
trace the embroidery lines 
onto the dial.

I used all 6 strands of the 
red and green Aurifloss.
I like to embroider 
first before appliqué.

After your embroidery and 
appliqué are completed...
trim your block to 6 1/2" square 
to sew into the quilt.
Use the lines on the Trim-It Ruler 
to get it exactly centered.

Sew a red button in the 
center of the dial:)
Fun and Done!

Now let's move onto 
making the oven block:)

Lay out your pieces like this.
All seams are 1/4" as usual.

And sew the background strips 
to the sides of the gingham.

Sew the two strips to the 
top and bottom of the oven handle.

Sew the two strips on 
each side of the oven window.

Now sew the two squares onto
 the sides of the handle.

Sew the strip to the 
bottom of the oven window.

Now sew all three segments together
 and your oven is pieced!

Your block should measure 
16 1/2" square BEFORE 
you sew it into the quilt.

Trace a 5" x 7" rectangle 
onto your sew-in interfacing.

Place it onto the gingham...
paying close attention to center it 
on both sides and straight.

You don't want your 
dishtowel to be crooked:) 

Look closely at where my 
traced lines are on the gingham
 and do the same thing.

You will need E11 for the clock 
and E12 for the knobs.


Trim...turn...shape and press.

Use the pattern on page 12 and 
trace the embroidery lines.

I like to embroider first.
I used all 6 strands of the 
aqua and the red...
as well as the off white 
for the chicken scratch 
on the dishtowel.

Here"s a close up of the 
chicken scratch.
Use the pattern on page 19 
for your stitching guide.
For the red stitches...
I just did straight stitches
 down the center of the squares...
alternating rows are 
horizontal and vertical.
Then I wrapped my thread underneath
 those rows to make the diamond design:)
You put your needle back down 
into the same place that you came up 
for each diamond.

I did my cross stitches first 
and then cross stitched over them 
again but from top to bottom 
instead of diagonal.

Easy peasy and fun!

I used Cute Little Buttons from the #2 Jar.

Cute as a button!!

I use matching Aurifloss to sew them on.

Baste the clock on first...
making sure its in the center.

Then add the knobs.
They are all 1" apart from each other.
Baste your dishtowel even with the top
 of the oven door handle and 
1" in from the left.
Now you can Applique!!

Now that you have an oven...
 you can bake all kinds of goodies!
Next week we will bake cookies...
so stay tuned:)
