Here is Block 1 of my 2010 Block of the Month: Florabunda. I’m a little new to putting patterns up on my blog so if you have any trouble downloading the pattern let me know by leaving a comment. I have the pattern in two forms. The first is a full size pattern (12” square you can download here ) that you can save to a USB drive and take to a copy place to have printed. The other is a ¼ size drawing (download here) that should print on a regular printer. You can make 4 copies of this one and tape it together for a full size pattern. Good luck and let me know how it goes. If we have enough people doing this it would be fun to have a gallery.
Also, I have added some tips for pressing the appliqué pieces. If you look closely you will see that mine isn’t actually stitched yet (Ooops). I decided to take the kids to Avatar in IMAX 3D and I had a 3D movie hangover.
I can cut multiple shapes by pinning. These scissors from Karen Kay Buckley help.
