I’m so excited to see what everyone’s blocks will look like once they’re put together. And I’m excited about this month’s giveaway, too! You’ll find the details toward the end of this post. First, here is what my final appliqued block looks like:
I’m cheating a little bit in that I haven’t finished stitching around the applique shapes. It makes such a big difference when it’s totally complete.
I love the design of this block and it has an interesting (and easy) pieced setting. Let me show you how I trimmed the setting triangles down, since it is over-sized. I placed the setting unit on my mat so that it lined up with the lines of the mat. Then I placed the 45 degree line of the ruler on the bottom raw edge of the unit, and the corner of the ruler was placed on the center top of the unit (as shown below).
Then I trimmed the two sides. Repeat with all setting triangles.
And now for the giveaway! Jacqueylnne Steves is giving away this lovely pattern pack that includes a Merry Go Round Quilt Pattern and Megan’s Flower Punchneedle pattern. All you need to do is leave a comment for me here by September 20th. Remember, international readers are welcome!

Also, Jacquelynne has Cozy Afternoon quilt labels and note cards available! These are so adorable! You can get more information about them here.
Plus, Jacquelynne is having another Sew Along Day! This will be on Saturday Sept. 26. This is a great way for you to set aside time to get caught up on your blocks (or make extras), and there will be lots of giveaway prizes.
