Four sets of spiky leaves with one having the spikes chopped off

Posted by on July 4, 2016 in blocks | 1 comment

Here are my four spiky leaf blocks for this month. The first I made is the one on the bottom left (pink background). For the solid lime green leaves I cut the bias strips from an 8 inch high fabric piece, for the dotty ones were from a 5 inch high piece. The shorter lengths of bias  worked better when the block was trimmed to the required final size. I am still not confident that I understood the process. Apologies for seams being more than quarter inch.

Sophie, let me know if these are not up to scratch.

  1. The nature of improv quilting is that sometimes things will get chopped off in the process. I see spiky leaves in all four of your blocks–they are fine. Too-large seam allowances can be trimmed if desired … unfortunately it’s not nearly so easy to deal with those that are too small.
