I have been loving the Bloom Sew Along and i'm grateful to be able to participate by creating Block Six with you. Head over to the Riley Blake Design's blog and Lori Holt's blog as they host a sew along using Lori's new fabric Calico Days and her Sew Simple Shapes. I was invited to participate in sewing a block and I chose to highlight October Afternoon's fabric Farm Girls for my four blocks that I created for you to see!
I couldn't help but center one of the farm girls in the center of the flower. I chose to machine appliqué my blocks, and instead of doing corner posts I simplified the borders. What do you think of the first block? Want to see more?
I love how versatile these shapes can be that you can fussy cut on each petal. Makes it easy to show off the fabrics well.
I love how fun you can mix and match your backgrounds to create interesting blocks.
So which block is your favorite? How about I show you them in a grouping!
I want to invite you back later this week, to see how I turned this into a fun mini project! You won't want to miss this project! I'm going to be posting it on Friday so you can enjoy some fun sewing this weekend. Remember to check back on Lori's blog each Monday to continue to follow along the great Bloom Sew Along. The shapes are really easy to work with and not intimidating at all. I am wanting to do a project with my new collection Wistful Winds when it get's here in September. I will definitely hand appliqué those blocks. Thanks for stopping by and remember to come back on Friday you won't want to miss it!
