Patchsmith Sampler Blocks 35 and 44 - Topiary Tree and Autumn Daisy

Block 35 - Topiary Tree

There isn’t much to say about this week’s block, Topiary Tree, except that it is quick and easy to make as it uses the quick fuse applique method.

If you are new to fusible webbing and raw-edge applique then you will find this page, on Quick Fusible Applique, helpful.
You can see the center crease in the background square at the top of the tree.
This helps when placing the applique pieces

The Topiary Tree can be made in seasonal colours or Christmas fabrics for a holiday specific project.  Otherwise scraps will hang nicely from these branches.

If you enjoy making this block then you will also enjoy making Block 44 – Autumn Daisy as it is very similar in construction.
Block 44 - Autumn Daisy

Next week we are back to patchwork as we make Block 36 - Moonlit Star.  Just be aware that there is a correction to paragraphs 9 and R9 of Block 36 - they should read: "With rights sides together place a marked (J) square .........".

To see all the blocks and links through to the tutorials just click on the 'Patchsmith Sampler' tab above.  You will also find the blocks made to date over on Instagram (#block34topiarytree and #block44autumndaisy) or in the Flickr group.

Until next time ......
