A Life of Plenty Part 14, free Sew Along is ready!

Okay folks!! Here we go! I hope you all had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

For the acorn block, cut. 5"x 5" square, and it will be trimmed down to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" after applique is complete! The templates are on my website, www.woolenwillowdesigns.com. I used a plaid wool for the top of the acorn, and a hand dyed pumpkin/brown for the bottom part.

For this part, cut your background 5" x 13", and after applique is complete, trim down to 4 1/2" x 12 1/2." I used the 3/8" bias maker tool from Clover to make my cotton stem, and cotton for the flower. I used hand dyed wools for the leaves and circles!

Here is what I have so far! I think I might be missing a section of flying geese still. So I'll go back throught the posts and count them!

 

I hope you are still enjoying this as much as I am!!

Have a great evening!

Jeni

My turn for the blog hop is Thursday! Yay!! So much fun!!

  5. Love how this is looking. So glad I decided to sew along in the beginning. Thank-you for the layout photo. I have been waiting on starting a couple of the last blocks because I wanted to see where they would be placed before choosing my background fabric.
