Some of you have asked how the layout will be. I haven't sewn the parts together yet, so don't worry! That will come! Here is how I plan to lay out the blocks we have so far! I would wait to sew anything together though, so it will fit nicely once it's ready!
I'm including directions for the next part, but the templates may not be up on my website yet.... Maybe in the next day or so! But so you could see the photo, I'm including it!
For each of the little blocks below, you will need a 5" square background. My basket is made from brown textured hand dyed wool, whip stitched down with brown wool thread. The flower is red hand dyed wool, stitched down with long stitches held together in the middle of the flower with a small tack stitch. The stem is back stitched with hand dyed green perle cotton thread, from my Valdani Collection on my website, and lazy daisy stitches for the leaves! After the appliqué is complete, trim the block to 4 1/2" square!
For the pumpkin, I used hand dyed velvet, I purchased from Blackberry Primitives, and a tiny piece of hand dyed brown wool for the stem. I turned the edges under for the velvet appliqué, so I needed to add 1/4" seam allowance to the template. If you are using wool, you won't need the addition of the seam allowance. I used cotton brown thread to back stitch the detail lines on the pumpkin. Trim block to 4 1/2" square, once appliqué is done!
