Block 4 of Sue Garman’s “Bed of Roses” could very well be my favourite block…so far! Do not be intimidated. This block is very simple. Yes…even for a beginner. First, I started with the bias strips.
Next, I added the leaves.
The flowers are sooooo easy! They are really all the same shapes, just different sizes. It is the fabrics that make them come alive!. I have added 3 more fabrics to this block, so there is a good variety of light, medium and dark pink.
I mean, really, could it get any easier?
So once all the flowers were finished….
…..I added the berries.
By the way, I almost never leave the house without my bag of applique. We are going to a friend’s cabin for the day, so I am prepared. Because heaven forbid I sit there with nothing to do!
When I do work at home, Bruin is such a help. He keeps my pieces warm and organized!
And finally, I added a cute little vase!
Here is the finished block! Block 4 (and Blocks 1, 2 and 3) are available on my website Simple Bird Studio.
Til next time…..
