City Girl Sew Along. 25 blocks! I am so tempted to start assembling this quilt. I am planning 10 more blocks yet it will take a great deal of willpower to wait that long. If I succumb to the temptation I will put everyone on alert!
Anyway, this is another fast block. I used Honeycomb Dots by Riley Blake Designs as a background within a white frame. The utensils were done in grey (I could have used a darker fabric so the background would not show through... oh, well). The machine applique was done with Aurifil 40wt which my Bernina (and I) love.
Here is what you will need:
(1) 6-1/2" x 6-1/2" square of background fabric
(2) 6-1/2" x 1-1/2" rectangles of border fabric
(2) 8-1/2" x 1-1/2" rectangles of same border fabric
(1) 8" x 4-1/2" rectangle for utensils
fusible web (HeatnBond Lite is perfect)
matching thread for applique'
here. Trace shapes onto smooth side of fusible web and fuse it to wrong side of fabric. For details on how to work with fusible web, click here. Using sharp scissors, cut around each utensil.
