I decided to join in on the fun, and try my hand at block #4:
In her videos and tutorials, Lori walks you through how to make each applique piece, how to place them on the block, and gives you options for how to baste and stitch them. And let me tell you - the video tutorials are SO helpful! I learned some great tips from watching. On my block, I chose to glue baste, and then machine stitch the pieces down.
About 95% of the time in my sewing, I am using a straight stitch. So it was fun for me to play with the blanket and zigzag stitches on my machine for a change.
I think this sweet little block (12") is going to live here on my shelf! All of the fabrics I used in my block are from Lori Holt's Calico Days fabric line. I just love the cheery red and yellow together!
