QNT blossom blocks BLUE prints
9-5-18 thru 9-25-18
September = BLUE prints
--one partner to receive 4 different blossom blocks
--4 matching blocks to keep for yourself
Fabric should be 100% cotton. All blocks will have white or tone-on-tone white backgrounds.
I found myself making 5 or 6 different projects this summer using these blossom blocks, and have even added the stems and leaves as well. But for this swap we are just doing the blossoms.
PRECUT your fabric
CAREFULLY cut eight 3-inch X 3-inch squares of each of your four-different color print petal fabrics. (4 different blue prints)
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.
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 ¼-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.
