Block One

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

Paper-backed fusible
Fine tip “Sharpie” to trace appliqué shapes on to fusible
Scissors to cut fusible backed appliqués – sharp paper scissors!
Spray starch
Iron and ironing surface
Rotary cutter, mat and ruler
Sewing machine
¼” foot
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!!!
