Yesterday, I got to sew after a week of busy work around my house and friends houses. I just received my next block in the 2013 Designer Mystery, so I worked on that and a couple of other things.
cant believe I'm on Month 10 now, only two more months and I can put
this quilt together. I cant wait. Month 10 - "New Bloom", looks like
what it is a flower at full bloom.
After the basic cutting, you start with the petals of the flower. You start by making two different half-square triangles. Which will give you four half squares. Then
you take a piece of 4 1/2" square that is mark diagonally across the
fabric and sew them on the blue corner of the fabric to get the 3 layer
look. Trim to a 1/4" seam allowance and press open.
that you need to sew the 2" squares across the side ends so they across
the three different fabrics. Need to that for both sides. The Petals
are done once you trim and press open.
you are going to make the center of the flower. You make four small
flying geese units. Then sew them to 2 1/2" green and cream fabrics
that were sewn together.
Sew the sides to the middle blocks to make the three rows.
all you need to do is sew that rows together and you have your finished
block. I love this one I think this one was my favorite one of them
all so far.
Well I think today, I will work on the next Kansas City Star block that just came so I have them all done for this month.
Love, Inspire and Create,
