City Girl Sew Along - The Scoop. It is my idea of how to celebrate all the work that went into this semester of graduate school: lots of ice cream! Besides, every city has an ice cream shop, so I needed to make one for 'our city'...
This block features Riley Blake Designs Honeycomb Dots in three colors. I think they are so fun!
Here is what you will need for this block:
(1) 8-1/2" x 8-1/2" square of white fabric for background
(1) 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" rectangle of yellow dots fabric
(1) 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" rectangle of orange dots fabric
(1) 4-1/2" x 3-1/2" rectangle of brown dots fabric
(1) 13" x 3" rectangle of tan fabric for cones
Fusible web for applique shapes (HeatnBond Lite is my favorite)
Matching thread for applique (I used Aurifil for most of the applique', except when I did not have the color I needed!)
Riley Blake Designs. With the busy colors for the ice creams, I thought white would make the best backdrop for them.
here to download template for the ice cream cones. Trace shapes onto the smooth side of fusible web (for more details on how to work with fusible web, click here). Iron them to the wrong side of each corresponding fabric as shown above. Cut around shapes using sharp scissors, and fuse them to background...
Now, take a peek at Ann's blocks. She is slowly catching up with me!
How are your blocks coming along? You can make them at your leisure - just be sure to send me pictures as you finish them or when the quilt is complete. If you would like to join the sew along now you can find all the blocks with tutorials in the City Girl Sew Along page.
Enjoy your weekend!
