Ella Maria Deacon Quilt – Month 13


September in Michigan is feeling like fall today! It's the perfect time for some extra stitching time in a comfy chair by the fire. I've got four great blocks for you today in our Ella Maria Deacon Quilt journey. I hope you'll enjoy them. Let's get started -


Block 49

This block should be fun to make. You've already had some practice on the Dresden petals. You can construct those in the method that worked best for you last time. Add the applique heart in the center and you've got one beautiful block!

I just love this block. That sunshine yellow is so yummy and just look at those sweet little hearts. This one is all applique and will be a joy to stitch.

Block 51

This block is a nice respite from the more complex blocks in the quilt. You've got easy rotary cutting and machine piecing to put together the majority of the block. Finish it with the four applique petals in the center. This is a block that might be nice to use set together with sashing to make an entire quilt. You could show off some great fabrics by changing up the green triangles.

This block doesn't look difficult and it's very much like Block 9 where I gave you a foundation paper piecing pattern to construct the block. I didn't do that this time although you could use that pattern and add the ring or triangles around the center. We're using templates this time. If you have freezer paper sheets that go through your printer I'd suggest printing the templates on the freezer paper. You can stack up at least four layers of your fabric, iron the template on the top layer, and use your rotary cutter and ruler to add the 1/4" seam allowance as you cut the pieces. You can then machine piece the block.

That's it for this month. You can get to the blocks in the online store by clicking on the link below.
