Merry Christmas!  I’m Carla from Creatin’ in the Sticks and today I am excited to be here to kick off this quilt block series where 4 members of the Thermoweb design team will share holiday block designs over the next week.  Every block can be stitched up in a day or two and you can sew along with us.  On Saturday, December 9th we will show different layouts to put the blocks all together so you can have it all finished by Christmas.  Let’s get started with block #1.

Holiday Quilt Block Instructions: 

Prepare the applique patterns:

If you are using HeatnBond EZ Print Lite sheets, print the applique pattern pieces with your inkjet printer.  Follow the package instructions for printing. NO TRACING!  How awesome is that?

With HeatnBond Lite on the roll, the pattern pieces will need to be traced on the paper side of the adhesive.  Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for tracing the patterns and bonding to the wrong side of fabrics.  The patterns have been reversed for you.

**TIP**  To prevent the fabrics from showing the background fabrics,  simply fuse interfacing to the back of the fabric before applying the applique adhesive.  The interfacing will just add another of layer of protection from “show through.”

Construct the applique block:

Next, cut out all applique pieces on the solid black lines, peel off the backing paper, and place applique with the adhesive side down on the 12 ½” x 12 ½” background piece of fabric following the key below.

Make sure to a leave ¼” seam allowance around the background block.

Bond the Applique Pieces to the Background

Following the package instructions, work in sections to press the entire applique to the background until the entire applique is fused.

Stitch around appliques

Use a straight stitch to stitch around each applique piece with black thread or use a zigzag or blanket stitch with matching thread.

    Off to a great start. I have even made the first block. Well, fused down and just needs to be stitched in place.
