Hi everyone! Hope your weekend is off to a great start. :-) Today I am sharing a quick tutorial for a pieced leaf block. Since the leaves are changing and the weather is cooling down, I thought this would be a fun block to show you. Ready?
I used five 5" squares from a Late Bloomers charm pack for this one. Two "background" squares and three prints for the leaf.
Start with one leaf square and one background square. Place right sides together (RST) and stitch all the way around - a quarter inch on all sides.
Cut your third leaf fabric square into four 2.5" squares. Layout out your block as shown below.
Sorry for the not-so-hot lighting. The sun was going down. You could easily make the block smaller or larger by using different size squares. I happened to have some charm squares laying around and wanted to play with the prints so I used 2.5" squares. If you have any questions, just leave a comment.
Also, there's a few days left to enter a fall-themed project in the October Stitch & Share Challenge. :-) Hope you'll join us!
Happy Sewing! :-)
