I finished sewing the handles on the basket for my # 4 block. Then I started prepping the flowers and leaves. This is how I prepare a flower and transfer it to the block all in one piece.
Then I place it on the block and glue it into place so I can sew into place.
It makes it easier to place as a whole piece instead of several pieces. I tend to skew the poor flower if I do it in pieces rather than as a whole. Once I have it sewn onto the basket I will then soak it in warm soapy water to get the blue marking and starch and glue out of the fabric. Then I rinse it and hang it on my design wall to air dry. When it is almost dry but still a little damp I steam press it face side down.
I am hoping to get 2 more blocks prepped this weekend. Lofty goals 🙂
Have a great weekend everyone. It’s a hot one here!
