Applique All Day Series: Block 1 – Hearts & Flowers

We are loving the new Aurifil 80wt. thread, and we hope you are too! With this product now available, we thought it was the perfect time for a little applique fun!

We teamed up with Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill Designs, who designed a series of six unique applique blocks using different applique methods! The block patterns are free and will help you practice some new applique tricks!

Today’s block is called Hearts & Flowers, and you can download it here

This sweet block features the Fleurs collection by Brenda Riddle for Moda. We chose the soft, beautiful hues of the Whisper 80wt. Thread Pack – a Fat Quarter Shop exclusive – to applique this block since it matches the delicate sweetness of the Hearts & Flowers.
