Sew Simple Shapes Mini ReMix Series - Blocks #15 and #16!!


Hello Quilty friends...

thanks so much for 

joining me here again on my 

blog for this months tutorials.

We are making blocks 15 and 16!

This month we are using the
Sew Simple Shapes

You will find the tutorial for 
making the pinwheel backgrounds
during week one tutorial for this series
if you need a refresher.

I used the gray stars from Bee Plaids,
 Red Chicken tracks from Farm girl Vintage,
And pink daisy and yellow circles 
from my Bee Backgrounds collection.

For Block 15 I used:
1 - A1 small circle
from Farm Girl Vintage

1 - A2 - large circle
from Flea Market

8 - A20 petals
Cut 4 each of 2 different yellow prints
I used a yellow print from Prim and 
a yellow floral from Cook Book 

After you sew the shapes you will 
need to trim and turn...
no clipping needed on these
 shapes before turning:)

Lay your pieces out...
pin and glue baste as per usual:)
Your flower should be 5 1/2" tall and wide.

Of course you will need to
 use your 6 1/2" Trim It Ruler 
to keep everything lined up and
 within the window
as I've shown you in my videos.

Glue baste and applique:)

For Block 16 I used:
1 - A6 small oval
from Bee Plaids 
1 - A8 large oval
from Vintage Happy 2
2 - A11  leaves
Cut 2 - 1 1/2" x 3 1/2" strips
from two green prints
I used Riley Green from Bee Cross Stitch
and green X's from Granny Chic

Cut a 3 1/2" stem from your spool
 and press one end under:)

I noticed on my sheet of the
 BLOOM page
in the SSS Cutting Guide 
that A-11 says 2" x 2 1/2"
but it should be 2" x 3 1/2"

Sew your green strips together 
using a 1/4" seam allowance and
 press open so that they lie flat.
Now you can sew the leaves by
 placing the  traced A-11 interfacing,
lining up the top and bottom points
 onto the center seam. 
It's an easy and fun way 
to make 2 color leaves!
Now sew the remaining shapes...
no clipping needed on these either!!

Layout your block so that 
your flower measures 5 1/2" tall.

The leaves are 5 1/2" wide as well:)
 Glue baste and applique!

Use the 6 1/2" Trim It Ruler to trim your blocks up (after applique)
and then sew them into your stars!!

For my star around Block 15...
 I used this print from my
 Flea Market collection.
 For the background I used 
a background from Bee Plaids.

For my star around Block 16...
 I used this gray print from my
 Stitch fabric collection.
 For the background I used 
Sea Glass circles from Bee Backgrounds. 

I hope you love this months blocks!
We now have 4 more blocks to go...
 for a total of 20.
Depending on my filming schedule 
for next month...
I may do those tutorials here as well.

If you are following my 
YouTube Channel
you will receive a notification
about next month
(if you have subscribed and
 hit the bell when subscribing)

Remember that as I 
told you in the beginning...
this is the quilt setting that
 we will be using to finish
our ReMix Mini Series Quilt.

It's my original 
Sew Simple Shapes Series Quilt 
that I did here on my blog as a 
sew along several years ago.

The blocks finish at 12" and 
so do our star blocks and so 
we are using the same setting!

If you would like to plan ahead...

to go to the post for all of 
the measurements for finishing the quilt.

If you are new to this series
all of the other block tutorials
 and information is on my 
YouTube Channel
to go check it out!

I hope you love making 
this months blocks as much as I did...
and I'll chat with you later!!
