I picked out some fabrics for my first attempt at a Grandmother’s Flower Garden block and cut a whole bunch of foundation papers ready to go.
Having the die was a blessing. I cranked it through the Big Shot with five layers of thin card, which gave me twenty hexagons. Plenty for the first block. I ironed the fabrics and cut some 2 1/2” strips with my rotary cutter. Then cut across to make squares. I followed this tutorial to baste the fabric onto the paper.
The next step is to whip stitch the pieces together. If all goes well with this one, I’ll make another for the Team Teal Quilting Bee. I think this one will end up as the centre of a cushion for my daughter’s bedroom. I know she has her eye on it.
Anyone else having a go? It’s not too late. You can find my preparation post here, if you missed it.
