Let's get started!!!

Okay friends! Let's get started! Here is a picture of block 1
 

Here is the template sheet to print!


page1image128
For the appliqué block, you will need a neutral print fabric, cut 7" x 13." I like to use my 6"x12" ruler, and center it on this background piece. I then, use a vanishing pen and trace the ruler. This gives me the border of where all pieces should stay within! After all appliqué is complete, I trim the block to 6 1/2" x 12 1/2." The leaves are scraps of hand dyed wools. I used a soft teal, red, pumpkin, bronze/gold, green, and a white and black texture! I just made one leaf template to cut all 13 leaves out, resulting in each leaf looking just a little different.
The stem, is made from a homespun cut 3/4" wide on the bias from a fat quarter in my stash. It's a brownish color. I used the clover bias tape maker that makes 3/8" bias tape. You may use the bias bars, or just use some spray baste, and fold the raw edges in on each side and press! Whatever works best for you! Another thought would just be to use wool, so you don't need the seam allowance, and can just whipstitch down like the wool leaves!
I pin everything in place with tiny appliqué pins, or use temporary fabric glue. I whipstitch all wool pieces down with matching wool threads, and do a blind stitch with a fine cotton thread that matches the vine fabric. For the wool appliqué, I use the wonderful Aurifil wool threads we sell on the Primitive Quilts and Projects website! There are nice sets of my favorite colors! I found some really pretty Madera wool thread at Touch of Thread quilt shop in Zanesville Ohio yesterday also, if you live near there. We also still have single spools of the Aurifil in my wool area of The Painted Cupboard, where Woolen Willow quilt shop used to be. Or you can use what you have on hand, and make it truly scrappy quilt!
Okay, if the above template page doesn't download and print, forgive me! I will make it work tomorrow, I PROMISE!! In the meantime, you can make the pieced block! Here are the instructions!
You will need: (12) 2 1/2" squares I used a mix of neutral prints, and then (6) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles, each a different medium or dark print.
Take one rectangle and two squares
Mark a diagonal line on the back of all neutrals. With right sides together lay a square on the left side of the rectangle, line up edges, and sew on the drawn line.
Trim away just the outer part of the square, leaving the rectangle intact, and press the inner part of what remains of the square toward the outer corner.

Repeat with the opposite side


Make six! Sew together, looking at the direction from the photo. By leaving the rectangles intact, you can match everything up easy, and have great results! This unit should measure 4 1/2" x 12 1/2."
Okay, get stitching! I will know within two minutes of posting this if the download doesn't print, so please don't worry, I will get tech help in the morning, and all will be well with the world! Thank you!

    1. Hi there! The flying geese part is not a print out, it just is to read, and jot down sizes to cut if you need to. Thanks for sewing along!

  11. Tour is always exciting and interesting. If it is night tour, it is more enjoyable. Night tour in new york city is really magical . The high line, a public park built on a historic freight rail line elevated above the streets on Manhattan’s west side is mind blowing. New york’s night harbor cruise, with awesome views of New york’s unforgettable skyline as well as opportunities to take up-close and personal photos of status of liberty removes the monotonous of life. Anyone can see the beauty of Chinatown, soho and Green village by the luxurious coach. The tour will continue to gran central station and Rockefeller center which is exceptional for you. At last one can enjoy the sight of 50th street of New york city at night, you can’t believe your eyes. So everyone should go on a tour like New-york city in any age.
