And this week are making 

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:)

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.

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!!
