Last days of Spring

I had intended to share this applique design this spring,....but I seem to be a little late....well actually, since Summer does not officially arrive until Sunday..... I am not late after all.

This block was designed as part of short article I wrote for CQA in early 2012,
In this article, I talk about auditioning fabrics and how to use interesting prints to your advantage.  The pattern is an applique block that can, of course, be done in whatever method you prefer. Mine is hand appliqued.

Perhaps you are looking for a project to work on while enjoying some lovely days on the deck.
You can view, download and print the file here
If you print the design at actual size, it will work nicely for an 8 inch block......if you would like it to fit a 12" block, you will need to enlarge it roughly 140%

A tutorial of my favourite method for freezer paper applique (including how I do those tiny 1/8" stems) can be found here

Thank you for the tutorial! It does seem lossy but the results are worth it. Leaving the paper I would also make it easier for a traveling or on the go project. And the tip for using a wash pencil on the shiny side of the freezer paper is gold - one ! Though, what is a wash pencil?

You are always so generous with your knowledge!!! This is a beautiful block and, as always, beautiful workmanship!
