Prim Sew Along - Week Five!!

"Beauty and Simplicity"

Welcome to week five of the

We are making the
72" x 90"

We are also using the

And my newest fabric collection 
to make the quilt:)

I have already posted the
 post which details all of the supplies
 for the sew along and how it works.
I have also given the link there 
for the free PDF Download 
of the Sew Along Guide

to read that post.

So far we have made 

for the first week blog post 


for that blog post

for that blog post

And last week we made the 
for last week's tutorial

this week we are making the block

Prim Sew Simple Shapes 
needed for this block are:
4 - K11
1 - K12
1 - K13
8 - K51
4 - K57
4 - K58

You will need to sew these two 
fabrics together for the
flower buds before you sew
 the K57 SSShapes

After sewing and trimming...
you will need to clip the cleavage areas
 in the appliqués that are 
on the cutting mat...
not the design board.

Okay...let's pin baste these flowers!

Use the 1/4" bias strips for the stems:
Cut 4 - 3 1/2" long
Cut 4 - 7" long

Because this block is symmetrical...
the easiest way to lay it out 
is to press your background
 in half both ways...and then both ways 
on the diagonal as well:)

Now you can pin your 
star directly in the center!

And then pin the stems 
right on the center of 
the creased lines.

See how these pressed lines 
are the same as the ones on the ruler!!


Pin the flowers like this.

Now you can use the Sue Glue 
and remove your pins:)

Use your ruler to center them 
correctly and stay within the
 aqua border on the ruler.

Place something heavy on top
 while the glue dries....
I put my brand new Prim Notebooks on mine!

Block 5 is all ready to appliqué:)

After applique...
trim it to 16 1/2" square
 so that it will fit into the quilt!

I love this block and I think it
 would make an adorable pillow 
as well as making several of them 
for an entire quilt!

If you didn't get a chance 
to watch the Prim Steps Block
 tutorial on Friday
to watch it and find out 
all about making 
the blocks for the border.

For the video I pinned the 
first three blocks to my design wall 
and sandwiched them between the 
Corner Stars and the Steps Blocks.
Wouldn't it be cute as a 
wallhanging just like this?

Then I took the bottom row off 
and added the sashing and 
cornerstones underneath just like 
they are in the quilt.

Here are a few close up photos 
for you so that you can sew
 which sashing strips go where.

Of course on page 14 of the guide 
it shows you exactly how to 
sew the rows and the entire quilt together...

But photos always help!

When you have the first three blocks 
finished you can sew the 
top of the quilt together like this...
or wait until you have
 all the blocks completed:)

Whichever way that you decide to do it
 is up to you and your 
individual sewing time schedule.

The most important thing is to relax
 and enjoy each step of the way!

I'll meet you right back here
 next week for another 
Prim Block tutorial:)
