English Country Garden BOM – Block 8 – Poppy
Sorry for the delay folks, here’s the brand new Poppy block as promised – eventually. This one is a bit easier than the last couple to give you a litle bit of reprieve and it’s a checkerboard background again. The poppy is pretty apt for November so it seemed right to schedule that in this month. The next one is out on the 1st December so this pattern is free to download until then. Previous templates are $1.50 in my Craftsy shop if you missed out.
This pattern includes the same instructions for applique as before, and the same instructions as the Bluebell block for the background, but with new templates for the poppy. The instructions are: making bias tape stems, turned edge and raw edge machine applique, piecing the checkerboard background, thread choices and the pattern in standard and mirrored formats depending on which type of applique you opt for.
I’m on the end of an e-mail if you get stuck, just leave a comment here or email me.

Oh and BTW in other news- my sewing machine is being fixed for free- Husqvarna approved the request that they would foot the bill, yeeeeyyyy!
Right I need to sleep now.
