Hello! I'm Natalia Bonner, owner of Piece N Quilt in Heber, UT. You can read all about me here. I'm so excited to be sharing my first Moda Bake Shop project with you. What better way to start my Moda Bake Shop sharing than with a quilt titled "I'm Blushing!"
Jelly Roll Basics Milk
1 Blush Jelly Roll
3.5 coordinating yards backing
1 coordinating yard binding
Separate out four prints for your flowers.
From your prints you will create 24 blocks. (You can make two blocks from each print) Start by sewing two 2.5"x 2.5" blocks to each side of your white 2.5" block.
Now sew a 6.5"x 2.5" strip to the other sides of the block to create the block above. Repeat this process until you have 24 blocks.
Using your white strips cut 12, 2.5"x 12.5" strips for your large blocks. From your prints you will sew two 2.5"x 2.5" squares to the ends of the long strip as shown in the image above. (You will be able to make one block from each print.)
Now attach two 16.5" strips to complete the block as shown in the image above. You will need 12 total of this block.
Now for your sashing you will use your white jelly roll strips.
Then from your white jelly roll strips you will cut 8, 6.5"x1.5" strips for the ends of your long block rows.
Sew all of the top portion of the quilt together as shown in the image above.
Then sew two white strips that are 30.5" side by side as shown in the image above.
For the 4th stem you will first sew a 14.5" brown strip to a 2.5" white strip. Then add two 16.5" white strips to the left side and one to the right side.
You should now have 5 sections for the bottom portion, as shown in the image above.
I now add my applique to this bottom portion before sewing the top and bottom portions together. For me it's just less bulk to put through the machine.

Repeat this process with some scraps for the small circle centers. I used a cup for my template, perfect size.
For the leaves on the applique cut out a shape like the petal above and cut out 6 leaves. (There should be enough brown scraps for all six leaves.
I used a blanket stitch and brown thread to applique by machine.
