3 of 11 | Appliqueing Stems, Leaves, and Tulips

Over the Meadow Block of the Month | Jan Patek | Runtime (30 min)

Nine of the twelve blocks in Over the Meadow include stems and leaves, and Jan demonstrates how to use freezer paper templates to mark, cut out, baste, and applique the stems and leaves to the block’s background. She shows how to layer the stems under the flower pot and join the leaves to look more realistic. She then demonstrates preparing the tulip flower heads which are included in the first three blocks and hand appliqueing them down around the tulip flower head’s inside and outside curves. Tips for appliqueing the bird will be included in Lesson 8.
