Diane – Fall Blend, A Fabulous mix of Kim Schaefer Fabrics

Diane says:  I did turned under, machine qpplique.  I cut full pieces of B & D out of freezer paper and ironed the freezer paper to the back of desired fabric.  I cut out 1/4” all around larger.  Turn and press the shape of the freezer paper.  Stitch to background A with your favorite stitch.  Press & Trim background A to 3-1/2”.  The 1-1/4”" corner squares seemed to be a bit too large, 1-1/8” would have fit better.

Julie: Elm Creek Quilts; The Giving Quilt This block was put together by PW Customer Mari H.

Mari H says: Make solid appliqués for piece B on page 120. Applique these and then trim the squares and apply the squares. Finally, appliqué piece D on top of piece B between the squares and assemble the block.

We encourage you to take pictures of your blocks and upload them to our Loyal Union Sampler Flickr Group. If technology isn’t your thing, bring your blocks into the shop and we’ll snap a picture of them and upload them on your behalf.
