For the daisy center, I again used my Accuquilt cutter. A leaf motif made perfect daisy petals, and it cuts up to 6 layers at a time - quick and easy! Nice.
Keeping it "sew" simple with fusible web and a blanket stitch for my applique', as on Block #1 and Block #2.
This block uses so many half-square triangles, I went with a fun and simple way to knock out 8 HSTs at the same time! Checked with my handy little pocketbook Quilter's Bible for the formula:
Mark diagonal lines in an X
Layer and STITCH 1/4" on both sides of lines.
CUT in a in + and x
YIELD = 8 "instant" half-square triangles! (Repeat twice for all the light red HSTs)Beautiful!
