This ITH quilt project features a fashionable, seasonally outfitted block for each month of the year! Each block is appliquéd and then stipple stitched with batting in the hoop. The heart stippled half blocks and flower mini-corner blocks are also created in the hoop with batting. They may be stitched one at a time or in groups as shown. Once the blocks are complete they are then strip pieced together with narrow sashing. Complete step-by-step instructions, with appliqué directions and other helpful hints and tips, are included as a PDF document. The finished quilt measures approximately 55” x 42” when the blocks are sewn together as shown below.
These designs require a 4x4, 5x7 and 6x10 hoop. The girl blocks, mini-corner heart stippled block set, 10” x 3” heart stippled block, and 6” x 3” heart stippled block set require a 6x10 hoop. The single 6” x 3” heart stippled block will fit in a 5x7 hoop. The single 3" x 3" mini-corner heart stippled block will fit in a 4x4 hoop.
(Please note – The 3D fabric flowers embellishing the quilt shown below are from the Pretty Posy design set and are not included with this quilt project.)
