Golden Days BOM #5 & #6

Dear Friends,

Golden Days BOM #5, Vintage Pineapple Block, is our August block and is available for pickup.

This month you will be making one appliqué block from the mylar templates included in your fabric packet. Be sure to read all of the instructions before starting your block. Jen has included excellent instructions for this month’s block construction.

We have included an additional fabric piece with this month’s packet. This extra piece will be used in the construction of future blocks.

If you are following Jen Kingwell Designs FaceBook page for Golden Days you will see that some participants are using various pineapple fabrics in this month’s design.  After we assembled this fabric packet; our man in brown shorts delivered pineapple fabric! You may want to purchase some of this cute fabric to use instead of our fabric choice. When you pick up your packet this month be sure to ask us to show you the new Art Gallery pineapple fabric!

Golden Days BOM #6 for August, Natalie’s Flowers Block, is also available as of September 1st.

 

You will be constructing another appliqué block from mylar templates. We have included additional fabrics in your packet this month that will be used in future blocks.

There is an error in the cutting instructions for this month’s block.  The cutting instructions call for cutting 24 shapes from the leaf template.  You only need 20 shapes to complete your block.

Again, Jen has provided excellent instructions and diagrams for this appliquéd block. We want to encourage you to have fun and personalize this block by using some favorite colorful fabrics from your stash to “moose it up” for the flowers at the four corners of this block. Then make sure that you incorporate this fabric later in the construction process. It is always fun to see how you interpret a pattern with your own fabric choices.

Happy Stitching,

Carolyn
