Chapter 1 of the Dear Daughter Quilt is available today!
Thanks so much to everyone who has subscribed, I think it’s going to be such fun! If you missed the original post, this is my new Block of the Month for 2016, but you receive a full Chapter of blocks rather than one block per month. Here is where we begin with Chapter 1…
If you’ve already subscribed in my shop and did not receive it in your email please contact me @ email@example.com so we can verify your email address.
You can find the pattern
EACH CHAPTER includes:
- Pattern ~ for all Chapter 1 blocks
- Templates ~ including entire alphabet to make your own text
- Technique Instruction
- Sneak Peek into next month (for the over~achievers in the bunch!)
I’ve organized the Chapter 1 Pattern and Techniques page in a binder, if you’re following along you might want to do this too…
I also included a spot to color in Chapter 1 with your own colors!
Here’s a couple pics I took of a some patchwork blocks in this Chapter…
For the text blocks I used Steam-A-Seam Lite 2 and printed from my computer onto printer ready sheets, but you can trace them as well.
Steam-A-Seam actually has paper on two sides, so after I printed it, I cut out the shape (leaving at least 1/8″ around template lines) and removed one side of the protective paper (non printed side.) Then I ironed it onto the wrong side of my fabric…
cut out each shape on the template lines…
and removed the second layer of paper off the back of the trimmed letters. NOTE ~ What I love is the back of your applique is tacky so you can position all your pieces and they won’t slide around but you can move them if you want to. When you have them in position, just fuse and stitch!
