PRIM Sew Simple Shapes 
needed for Block Nine:
1 - K9
2 - K10
1 - K12
1 - K13
1 - K23
1 - K24
3 - K29
1 - K33
1 - K42
1 - K43
2 - K50
1 - K61
2 - K62

*You will need three 
1/4" curved bias strips.
Cut the longest one 12" 
and press one end under.
Cut the other two 6" long 
and no pressing under because 
they will tuck under the 
long stem and the flower tops.
*Cut 2 - 1/4" straight bias
 2" long for the bird legs:)


This is the shape that you will use
 to make all three sizes 
of the stacked Shaker Boxes.
You can see that there are
 3 widths marked by the stitched lines 
and you will use them to mark your
 sewing lines onto each interfacing...


Like this:)
Also mark the line across
 where the lid goes.
Before sewing each shape 
sew the fabrics and the lids together 
and press the seams open for less bulk:)


Before sewing the shape for the bird
 you will need to sew 
these two fabrics together as well.


You will need to clip seam allowance 
in the following shapes before turning:

Cleavage in the star...
pineapple top and heart

  Inner curves in the bird 
and the three flowers.


Block Nine is all shaped up...
 pressed and ready to go!!


Pin baste on your large design board
 and then add the Sue Glue.


Use your best friend (16 1/2" Trim-It Ruler) 
to place the shapes and create your block.









When your glue is dry
 it's time for applique!!
Use your favorite method of applique...
either by hand or by machine.


Either way you will want to
 match the thread to each applique piece.

**If you are doing it by machine 
you do not need to change
 the bobbin thread
 to match because that will 
be on the back of the block...
you will only need to 
change the top thread
 to match applique shapes.


This block was really fun
 for me to make and design as well.
Did you know that the pineapple
 was a symbol of Welcome in colonial times?
It's one of the reasons that
 I wanted to include it in this quilt:)



WELCOMING and CHEERFUL
should measure 16 1/2" square 
after trimming it up with the ruler:)

It will finish at 16" square 
after sewing it into your quilt:)


And speaking of sewing...
after this block is completed 
you can sew row three together 
and add it to rows one and two.
!YaY!


I love how the first eight blocks 
look on my sewing room design wall...
now I can add block nine:)


Thanks for "tuning in" for the 
block nine tutorial and I will 
be back here next week to start
 on the last row with block ten!!

*You will need three curved 
1/4"bias strips for the flower stems.
They should each measure 10", 8" and 7" 
after pressing one end under

*The 1/4" straight bias for her hat brim
 should measure 3 1/2" long after 
pressing both ends under

*Cut the 1/4" straight bias for her
 hair 2 1/2" long and press in half:)


Piece these two fabrics together and press
 the seam open before you sew the K-27


When tracing K-7 for the sheep legs...
 use the line on the shape 
for your new sewing line.


Piece these two fabrics together
 and press the seam open 
before you sew the K-40 Shape.


I forgot to take a photo before 
I sewed the K-28 shape for her skirt...
but I'm sure that you can sew 
that you need to trace the line
 for sewing the bottom of her skirt:)


After you have sewn and trimmed 
all of the shapes... you will need to
 clip the seam allowances in the 
stars and flowers and 
the sheep before turning:)


Just look at these adorable shapes 
all ready to turn into a PRIM Block!!

Remember how important it is
 to use the turning tool 
to get them each into shape!


I wanted to show you a few close up photos
 of how I did the ladies head, hat and hair.

The first thing I did was clip
 a little of the top of the hair piece...
you will want to clip it on an angle 
so that it lays on the
 side of her head like this.


Next apply some Sue Glue
 right on your sewn seam...


And glue down the hat brim to 
cover the raw edge of the hair piece.

Add the top of her dress too.

Grab the 1/4" strip of hair and
 glue onto the bottom like this.


This is what the back of mine looks like.


After that dried I applied a sweet blush
 to her cheeks and gave her a french knot eye:)


Now it's time for pinning!!


After you have pinned...
next step is the Sue Glue:)


Bee sure to use the 
16 1/2" Trim-It Ruler 
to align all of your shapes.







After the glue is dried 
it's time to take out the pins...


And applique using your favorite method...
by hand or by machine.


The appliqué is finished 
on my block and I love it!
Isn't she sweet?
I'm partial to anything with sheep.
As you all know I'm a farm girl 
and we always had sheep 
in the pasture right behind our house.
They are such gentle animals:)


PLEASANT and GENTLE
should measure 16 1/2" square
after trimming it up.



Thanks again for joining me this week
 and sewing back to a gentler time:)

Enjoy this David Austin rose from my garden.
It's called "Golden Celebration"
and is one of my favorites.

I'll chat with you later!!
