Tomorrow is Block of the Month day and we’ll be working on block #2. You will need the following:

Background fabric
Appliqués: Flowers: 2 in the same family with enough contrast
     Leaves & Stem: 1-2 greens
     Flower pot & feet: 2 coordinating

Thread: To match fabrics for 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 or sizing
Iron and ironing surface
Rotary cutter, mat and ruler
Sewing machine
Open toe foot (for appliquéing – makes it much easier to see what you’re doing 
Pins
Marking chalk or pencil

And anything else you normally use!!!

I will post PDF's of patterns soon! Let me know if you need help!
