Well would you believe we are up to block four of the BOM 2018 ! Where does the time go........
I love seeing all the wonderful pictures of this quilt in progress over on the Sharon Keightley Quilts Facebook group. Your quilts are all so wonderfully beautiful, love the colours you have chosen.
Block three is a pieced block with an applique flower in the centre. I have used browns, blue's and Red's with a splash of chrome/gold in the center. The Flying Geese blocks use the same method as with the Snowball blocks. If you missed seeing how I sewed my Snowball blocks you can read about it here.
I will leave you with a picture of my blocks. This month I will be working on the applique blocks for the corners of the quilt.
Comments will be approved before showing up.
The recipe for the nine patch blocks is available as a free PDF download here
How cute is that. Warning ! they are addictive........
While sewing the flowers on the border of the Feathered Star Quilt, I thought it would be great to share my method
Here are the steps I used to complete the flower and stitch it in place.
For each flower shape, use freezer paper templates and iron the edges over the freezer paper. You can find more detailed instructions about this in my e-book Applique! Creating and Stitching here
There are two types of flowers in the border, I will start the Tutorials with the Pink and Red Daisy flowers.
