Lily block

Did you notice that I am a little early this month?  I am trying to get ahead.  Next month I am going to be away for a great chunk of it,  and I have not yet worked out how to do these block posts on the Samsung Tablet!  So, May's block may be as early as the 5th or 6th.

I was a bit worried with the Red and Green blocks, that they were starting to have another "theme"and that was the "crossing" kind of style.  That was not intention, it is just that I like them.  So, I thought I had better change it a bit in case you got bored. The LILY is a little more complex with overlapping petals and very fine stems.

To do this block well, start with the yellow petals, just appliqueing the outer parts in place, then overlapping with the red petals.  That will make the flowers nice and flat.  Then do the leaves, the stems, and finally the base of the flowers.

Hope you like the block.  You can print it off free of charge by clicking on the image at the top tight hand side of this page.

The block should print off at 8".  If you want it smaller or larger, then perhaps you can adjust your printer.  For the 8" size do no adjusting, just print of  100%.  My intentions with these is to have them print on one page of paper.  Hopefully I have got it right.

Happy stitching!
