This pattern makes a very pretty quilt block that can be used in a wall hanging or hot pad.

Use an applique pressing sheet to create a beautiful bouquet of flowers for your basket.

Note: all seams are 1/4 inch. Always iron between steps.

Sewing Supplies: Very sharp, small sewing scissors, quilting pins, large sewing ruler, fabric marking pencils, seam ripper, rotary cutter and mat
hint: quilting pins are easier to use than regular pins; a tupperware box works well as a supply box.

Safety Reminders For Little Helpers

A. Always have an adult do all the ironing!
B. Never run with scissors. Carry them pointed end down.
C. Never use a sewing machine without adult supervision.
D. Always let an adult use the seam ripper for you.

Now you are ready to start!

Please Note: It is a good idea to pre-wash and iron all fabric before beginning.

Create Pattern / Cut Fabric Pieces

Draw the following pattern pieces. NOTE: the heart is drawn onto a piece of paper that is 3" x 2.5", folded down the center to make 1.5" x 2.5"

Cut one triangle of pink floral from Pattern Piece #2

Cut one bias strip of purple that measures 1 1/4" x 9" (for handle) - NOTE: this MUST be cut on the bias
Cut heart from blue fabric: cut it 1/4" LARGER all the way around than the pattern piece.
