It's been so much fun designing quilts with the Back Porch Blooms Block in EQ7. I designed this one after several of you mentioned the block would look cute as a spring banner. Thanks for the great idea! I love inspiring and being inspired.
Later this week I'll be sharing the pattern for the quilt above. It didn't take long for me to come up with the pattern name "Hello Spring!" Of course the cute heart flower pot (below) will be included. If you can't wait for the pattern and want to give it a whirl on your own you can find the free tutorial for the heart block over at Cluck Cluck Sews. I used the 4" heart block. And the butterfly block(above) is a freebie here on my blog, you can find it here.
The pattern for "Hello Spring" will include the "welcome" templates. However I'll will not be doing an applique tutorial. But will share a few tips about how I made them.
I used the raw edge fusible applique with Invisifil White thread to make my letters. This thread adds just the right amount of accent to the quilt without taking over the applique.
Just one more picture of the quilt because Pam Kitty fabric is so darn CUTE.
Since it's a linky party we need to have a button(below). Feel free to share it on your blog. If you click on the Back Porch Blooms button in side bar of my blog it will take you to all previous post about this quilt along. I've shared a couple of ideas for quilts over the last month. And will be sharing more over the next couple of months. You can find the post for the Back Porch Blooms Block tutorial here.
And whats a party without a giveaway? Below are some of the things in this months giveaway. I've added a couple more things but poor lighting and time hasn't allowed for a new picture.
So how can you win this? Simple, just link up your Back Porch Blooms blocks or quilts made using my free block tutorial. You must link up here on this post to be entered n the giveaway. All links that do not contain a Back Porch Bloom Block will be deleted. The linky party will be open until June 13th. 10pm. On June 14 a winner will be chosen at random and will be announced here on the blog. There will be two more Linky parties and giveaways over the next two months, so there's plenty of time to join.
