OK, so I don’t have Block 11 totally done yet. As I was getting it together I decided to do this tutorial to show you how to get the center part all basted.
Here I have pinned my background square on top of the pattern and I have it on top of my light box. If you don’t have a light box, don’t worry a window works just fine.
The center bit is pink and I wanted to put that down first. It’s a 4” circle which I cut out, folded in half twice and put on my background, aligning the folds.
I then glued it in place and basted it down.
Next, you want to put it back onto the pattern so these heart petals get lined up.
Carefully place each heart/petal so that the place where they aren’t touching is symmetric.
Keep going and re-adjusting until the center part looks even and symmetric.
OK I hope that wasn’t too much of a tease for you. I will be back on Friday with the real pattern. Just consider it my antidote to Black Friday.
