Granny's Garden Sew Along - Week Ten!!


Hi there and welcome to my blog:)


This is Week Ten in our
Granny's Garden Sew Along



We are using Granny Chic Fabric...



And Granny's Garden
 Sew Simple Shapes



To make the Granny's Garden Quilt


This week's focus is on 
Flower Blocks 37 thru 40:)


Time to "sow"!!


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 37:
2 - I 3
2 - I 5
1 - I 17
1 - I 19
Cut the stem 5" long 
and press one end under



After sewing and trimming you will
 need to clip between the flower petals.



Shaped and pressed:)



Use the 10 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
to center it while glue basting.



Flower Block 37 is ready for applique


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 38:
4 - I 9
1 - I 21
4 - I 26
Use the 2" Circle Ruler 
from the set for the flower centers.
Cut 4 stems 1 1/2" long



Shapes that need to be clipped 
in this block are the four flowers:)



Shaped and pressed and 
ready for pins and glue:)



Take advantage of all the lines on
 the ruler and center all of your shapes.



Flower Block 38 ready for applique


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 39:
4 - I 2
4 - I 15
1 - I 28
Use the 6" Circle Ruler from
 the set to make the Shabby Cloud Circle.
Cut 2 stems 2" long
(for some reason I cut 4 but only need 2)



You will need to clip the 
large scalloped circle and
 the tulips before turning:)



Shaped up and ready to go!



I did the tulips...leaves and stems
 on the smaller circle first...



Then added that to the scallop.



I used the 10 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
to center onto the larger circle.



Flower Block 39 is ready for applique:)


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 40:
6 - I 20
1 - I 22
Use the 4" Circle Ruler from
 the set for the smaller circle



The only shape that needs clipping is the small flower on the center:)



Shaped and ready to go.



I used the ruler to line everything up
 and I cut the end off each petal 
to reduce bulk underneath the center circle.



Flower Block 40 is ready for applique.



After quilting I'm going to add some
 Cute Little Buttons
to this cute little block:)





After you have appliqued
 all of the circles...
applique them onto 
their background squares.


Whew!!
We are almost finished planting...
next week we will do the 
last two flower blocks
 and the border pieces.
Meet you right back here next week:)

Granny's Garden Sew Along - - Week Nine!!


Welcome back sweet gardeners:)


It's Week Nine of our
Granny's Garden Sew Along



We are using Granny Chic Fabric...



And Granny's Garden 
Sew Simple Shapes...



To make the 
Granny's Garden Quilt


This week we are planting 
flower blocks 33 thru 36


Let's start "sowing"



Sew Simple Shapes for Block 33:
8 - I 6
1 - I 23
Use the 2" Circle Ruler from 
the set for the center circle.


After sewing and before turning 
you will need to clip between
 the scallops in this flower:)



Turned...shaped...pressed...



and centered!



Flower Block 33 is ready for applique:)


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 34:
4 - I 7
4 - I 11
1 - I 21


There is no clipping for this block.
Simply trim...



Turn and shape:)



Pin it and then glue baste.



Use the small ruler to help 
with the center circle 
and use the 10 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
to center the entire block:)



Flower Block 34 ready for applique.


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 35:
2 - I 2
2 - I 5
3 - I 15
Cut the center stem 7" long 
and press one end under.
Cut the side stems 2 1/2" long
 and cut opposite slant at the tops.


You will need to clip between the points 
in the top of each tulip before
 turning the shapes for this block.



Turned...shaped and pressed...
and all ready to baste!



Using the 10 1/2" Trim-It Ruler
 really helps a lot 
especially with these blocks 
that have the split stems.



Flower Block 35 ready for applique:)


Sew Simple Shapes for Block 36 :
1 - I 18
1 - I 21
1 - I 27 
1 - I 30
Use the 4" Circle Ruler in the set for
 the smaller Cloud Shabby Circle.


There are three shapes that need 
to be clipped before turning.
The star...the scallop circle and the flower.


Shaped and ready to go:)


I started with glue basting the flower
 on the smaller circle and 
then scalloped circle.

 

Then glue basted that onto
 the star and large circle.


Flower Block 36 ready for applique:)


I'm going to add 4 Cute Little Buttons 
onto this block after quilting.



After all 4 circles are appliqu├ęd...
 applique them onto their background squares.


Thanks so much for planting flowers with me! 
Join me back here next week 
for new flower block tutorials!
