This Wednesday will be working on our first BOM. This block is based on the Paducah Peony; I simplified it using a 9 patch block topped with a simple appliqué – so we get to practice a little raw-edge appliqué and blanket stitching.
This is what you will need to complete this block:
Fabrics: 9 patch: Background fabric and medium fabric
Appliqué: Three colors: 2 medium and 1 darker fabric
Thread: To construct block
Matching the fabrics for the appliqué
Fine tip “Sharpie” to trace appliqué shapes on to fusible
Scissors to cut fusible backed appliqués – sharp paper scissors!
Iron and ironing surface
Rotary cutter, mat and ruler
Open toe foot (for appliquéing – makes it much easier to see what you’re doing J
Marking chalk and smaller ruler – (3”x12)
...And anything else you normally use!!!
