ok, so i promised to show you how this is done. so, i will try to do this correctly so you get pics with the instructions. then a couple more layouts...
first you need:
(1) 61/2" square paper backed fusable (i used heat n bond lite)
(1) 6 1/2" square design fabric (mine/hot pink)
(2) 6 1/2" squares background fabric (mine/black)
next, trace your pattern on the paper side of the paperback fusable.
iron to wrong side of your design fabric
cut out your design on the lines
remove paper and arrange on your black squares...yup, you get (2) 6 1/2" squares for each (1) traced :)
see how simple that was?
this technique can be used for lots of different designs...have fun with it i sure have
Stunning! Now do you have to applique around the edges of the fused pieces?
yes, you should stitch down the appliques any way you prefer. i am going to 'quilt'them down...stitch them and quilt it at the same time...if i ever decide on a layout.
Thanks ... Love the colors against the black :thumbup:
I know you did not ask again, but I LOVE the diagonal.
Oh Boy....another one to add to the list..........beautiful blocks!
That is so simple it is almost sinful.
it is very easy and i have used the technique for lots of different designs...too much fun!
