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:)
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.
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 appliquéd...
applique them onto their background squares.
Thanks so much for planting flowers with me!
