100 Blocks Merry Little Flower

Thank you to all who entered my giveaway and THANK YOU to all who left comments.  You all said the nicest things it was fun reading them all!

Winner of the 100 Blocks Magazine from Quiltmaker is Melissa from Ardea's Nest
and 
I decided to give an extra copy away as well! That copy goes to Marika in Hungary--She's getting an autographed copy :)
The magazines will be on their way shortly!
Thanks everyone!

Sign ups now closed for the giveaway.

Welcome to my blog post for Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks!  

June and Carolyn of Creative Crafts Group and Quiltmaker first approached me in Minneapolis at Spring Market and asked me to submit a block for their second volume of 100 blocks.  I was thrilled and I loved meeting them both.  They are kind, and talented ladies. And of course the opportunity and challenge to create an original block for the magazine was too exciting.  A fresh new block is always a challenge, but it is one that I love.   
I didn't have much time before the submission deadline, so I began thinking about it once I returned home.
I had been spending time English Paper Piecing and I found that I really enjoy EPP.  It is a process, and it is not fast.  So much of my design work is on a timeline and a deadline, that it must be completed quickly.  There is not a lot of taking time to enjoy the journey when you work against deadlines.  However, I find that the journey of hand piecing is very relaxing to me.  So I decided to play with some shapes and came up with my Merry Little Flower block. I had to add a yo-yo because anyone who knows, me knows I adore making yo-yo's to adorn my many personal projects.  I made my block in 1930's reproduction fabrics because at the time I didn't have fabric from my TidBits line for Henry Glass yet.  I cannot wait to make it in TidBits though-it is certainly fun to make.  I love this block and I hope you do too!  

If you would like to win your own copy of 100 Blocks, leave me a comment about the 100 Blocks issue.  This can be anything related to the magazine, including which blocks you love, or why you would like the magazine.   

As a bonus you will find the basic instructions below for my 40" square Merry Little Table Topper.  Five Merry blocks and a little sashing makes a fun and happy little quilt.  This would also make a cute baby quilt!   You will need the templates and instructions for the block from the magazine.  My block is on Page 28 of the magazine.
Printable instructions here.  Merry Little Tabletopper instructions will be continue to be available on my blog sidebar for future reference.  

Thanks for visiting! 

If you would like to purchase additional issues of the magazine they can be purchased here at: www.quiltmaker.com/100blocks







Merry Little Tabletopper Instructions:
3/4 yard background fabric
3/4 yard border and petal fabric
3/4 yard red and white polka dot fabric for the sashing, binding, and red hexagon flower centers
1 Fat Quarter green fabric for the stems and leaves
1 yard solid soft yellow fabric for the setting triangles, corner triangles and yellow yo-yo centers
5 black buttons (optional)

Cut (5) 13 1/2" x 13 1/2" squares from the background fabric.
Make five Merry Little Flower Blocks as per the instructions in the Volume 2 issue of 100 Blocks by Quiltmaker.  Trim to 12 1/2" square.
Cut (4) 2 1/2" x Width of Fabric strips from the Black floral fabric for the borders
Cut (6) 1 1/4" x Width of Fabric strips from the red dot fabric for the sashing.  Leave two strips intact, and from the remaining strips, cut (8) 1 1/4" x 12 1/2" pieces, and (2) 1 1/4" x 14 1/2" pieces.
Cut (1) 18 1/4" x 18 1/4" square from the yellow fabric, then cut the square in half diagonally twice to yield 4 setting side triangles.
Cut (2) 9 1/2" x 9 1/2" squares from the yellow fabric, then cut them each in half diagonally once from corner to corner.  This will yield your corner setting triangles.  

Pin and sew two 1 1/4" x 12 1/2" sashing strips to each side of 4 of the flower blocks.  Leave one block without sashing, it will be the center block. Press the seams.  Pin and sew one sashed flower block to each side of the plain flower block, and press.  Measure the length and cut the long sashing strips to that length.  Pin and sew them to each side of the center row of blocks.  Press the seams. 

 Pin and sew one  1 1/4" x 14 1/2" strip to the top of one of the remaining blocks and one to the bottom of the other block.  Press the seams.  Pin and sew setting triangles to the sides of each of these blocks and press.

Pin all the rows together, and sew.  Measure the quilt top through the center to determine the length the borders will need to be.  Cut two border strips to that length.  Pin, sew and press the borders to the quilt top. Measure the quilt top through the center including the borders.  Cut the last two border strips to that length and pin, sew and press.  Now you can be Merry too because you are all done!

Thanks for the table topper pattern. I would love a copy of this magazine. Congratulations your block is lovely

Deb said...

I really do love your block for so many different reasons - it's a flower, it uses 1930's fabrics (my favourites) and it's an English Paper Pieced applique. I would like to win a copy of the magazine so I can have a copy of your block and because I live in Australia. Sometimes the magazines don't make it to us here down under. Winning one is the only way I can be sure of owning a copy.
