1. Easy Appliqued Flower Block - I designed this for our guild's 2011 Block of the Month program. Uses Heat & Bond Ultra Hold and NO SEWING for the applique!
Here's a wall hanging made by one of our Guild members of the pattern. I think it came out so cute! She used a variety of flowers for the centers.
2. Simplified Rolling Nine Patch - I designed this for our guild's 2011 Block of the Month program. I took a rolling nine patch which really is a 25 patch block and made it easier to put together. I used scraps as this was our theme for the year. In keeping with the scrappy theme, I used an orphan 6 1/2" nine patch block as the center. The corners a can be leftover HSTs that are 2 1/2" square or just 2 1/2" squares. This will give you a different look.
And here's a quilt I made using this design:
3. Fleur-de-lys block for my version of the Benjamin Biggs Wedding Quilt Block 1

4. Need a back?* Don’t have the yardage for backing your quilt top? Use fat quarters - one of my favorite tricks. Here’s a list to assemble a back from fat quarters assuming you have a useable 17 ½” x 21” rectangle (longest side horizontal) from your fat quarter. Pick a color family that is prominent in your quilt top and you won’t have to worry about matching - a great reason for visiting your local quilt shop and buying some coordinating fat quarters. Go!
Sewing a 2 by 2 grid of fat quarters gives you a 34.5″ by 41.5″ back.
Sewing a 3 by 3 grid of fat quarters gives you a 52″ by 62.5″ back.
Sewing a 4 by 4 grid of fat quarters gives you a 69.5″ by 83.5″ back.
Sewing a 4 by 5 grid of fat quarters gives you a 69.5″ by 105.5″ back.
Sewing a 5 by 5 grid of fat quarters gives you a 105.5″ by 105.5″ back.
If you need a wider back – add strips to the vertical sides.
* Adapted for quilters from an article by Penny Haren in the Checker Newsletter for retailers. My fat quarters are bigger than the ones Penny used. I bet yours are too in that long ago assembled stash.
