PRIM Sew Simple Shapes
 needed for Block Twelve:
1 - K1
2 - K11
1 - K12
1 - K13
1 - K32
4 - K45
4 - K51
2 - K57
2 - K59
*You will need four curved 
1/4" bias flower stems...
each with one end pressed under
 in the following lengths:
5" - 7" - 9" - 12"


After stitching you will need to
 clip the cleavage and inner curves
 in the seam allowances of the tulips,
 hand, heart, daisies and stars.


The hand is one of those shapes 
that will look a little crazy
 after you have turned it.
NO WORRIES!
Just shape the thumb and fingers 
and the bottom at the wrist...


And then use just the tip 
of your iron to do the curves
 in-between the fingers...


This is what the back of mine 
looks like after shaping 
and using the iron...


And the front:)


All ready to go!!


Pins and Glue time:)








Time for applique!


Hands to Work
Hearts to God 
Our hands are meant to work...
 for our own well-being...
and for the well-being of those we love...
 as well as for the well-being 
of those we don’t love.
 Our hearts are given to God... 
for guiding us as we share 
the wealth of our lives...
 our churches and homes...
 along with our communities 
and for the love of all people:)



I saved this block for the very end
 of my Prim Quilt because of the
 hand and heart special meaning.

My hope is that it captures for you
 the meaning of each and every block 
that I designed and put together 
in my quilt and for the sew along.

I wanted my quilt to reflect 
a gentler time and to honor my
 great grandparents and the way 
that they lived tier lives.


"HANDS and HEARTS to GOD"
Should measure 16 1/2" square 
before we sew it into our quilt.


It's a bittersweet time for me
 because now we have 
finished all twelve blocks!
I love how they all look 
on the design wall:)

I'll be back next week to show you 
the simple quilt label that I am making
 and to show you what my quilt
 looks like all quilted and bound!!

I love this quilt so much. I made an effort to keep up with this sew-along and I’m so glad I did because now it’s all done and I think it’s the most beautiful quilt I’ve ever made and it’s definitely one of the quilts I’ve ever made that I’m most proud of! Thanks Lori Holt! ♥️

Thank you Lori for designing a quilt with such special meaning! I am quilting this for my 90 year old Mother In Law who taught me how to quilt 20 years ago. She and her husband of 67 years talk a lot about growing up in a simpler time during the depression and how this made them the independent and strong people they are! They are wonderful and so is your quilt! This is my first time attempting applique and I have to say... your tools and your method are fantastic! The colors and the story with this one will always be special to me!
