QNT blossom blocks PURPLE prints

6-5-18 thru 6-27-18

--one partner to receive 4 different blossom blocks

--4 matching blocks to keep for yourself

Fabric should be 100% cotton, and this round we will be making polka-dot print blossoms. All blocks will have white or tone-on-tone white backgrounds.

PRECUT your fabric

CAREFULLY cut eight 3-inch X 3-inch squares of each of your four-different PURPLE print petal fabrics.

Cut 32 two-inch white squares. Prep work:

With a pencil Draw a diagonal line (on the wrong side of the fabric) from the upper left-hand corner to the lower right-hand corner of each white square.

Begin assembly.

  1. Right sides together pin one white square to the upper right-hand corner of each of the print squares

  2. Stitch on the drawn line and cut ยผ-inch away from seam then press open.

Repeat these steps with all 4 different sets of print fabrics for your partner and 4 for yourself.

Stitch the 4 pairs together as one flower. You will end up with 4 individual flowers to mail, and 4 different flowers for you to keep.

Do NOT stitch the 4 different flowers together. They will be separate when we mail them so our partners can arrange the flowers as they see fit. We will not be making the stems or leaves.

Questions and concerns are welcome, please post below or PM me.

August: 2 yellow prints and 2 aqua/teal/turquoise prints

the picture attached is just an example of what you can do once we finish this series of block-swaps. we are sending only purple print blossoms this month.

I recently made a table runner using these blossom blocks in yellow and bright gold prints and even added the stems and leaves and it came out very cute, if I do say so myself.

Please tell us about or give us a photo of the added stem and leaves.

You say above (I suspect it got copied from the previous swap) that they will be polka dot prints. Do you actually mean purple polka dots, or just different purple prints?

purple is correct this time, not polka dots....sorry, forgot to change that
