As I was working on Mimi’s Bloomer’s Block 9 I noticed there were a couple of steps that would make a good tutorial. Here is a little bit about how I handle overlapping shapes.
When I am making my templates, I mark the part that goes underneath another shape with dotted lines.
Here is the top part of the flower and how I marked that.
Once my shapes are all pressed I pre-make the flowers. Here’s the top part of the flower.
Some dabs of glue.
And now the flower is all done and ready to put on the background. When I stitch this, I start by sewing the top down, then the flower and finally the base.
The REAL Block 9 will be up on Friday.
