Block 2: "things are made"
Welcome back for Block 2 of the Beautiful Things QAL!
I'm in the middle of a cross-country move as I film and make this block but it's giving me a respite from the never-ending box-packing, junk-sorting, heavy-lifting that has been my last couple of weeks. And I'm excited for the adventures that await! Let's jump straight in. If you have any questions AT ALL, reach out to me via social media, email, or on this blog/YouTube. With a baby in tow and lots of changes going on, my response time is not as fast as it normally is, but I WILL respond to you!
A couple of notes from some feedback I've received:
If you ordered the kit from FlexiFuse, it includes all the laser-cut applique, so you will SKIP all the applique tracing and cutting steps. I'm sorry I didn't mention that to begin with, but I don't have a kit, so you can see why it wasn't a present thought. Haha!
If you ordered the pre-printed fusible templates from FlexiFuse, you will SKIP the applique tracing step and fuse your fabrics straight to the pre-printed fusible. I am using the pre-printed templates (though I do show you how to trace in my Block 1 video).
If you haven't started the quilt along yet, just jump straight into Block 2 so that you're able to finish the block in time to be eligible to win the upcoming giveaways/prizes! Go HERE to download fabric requirements, cutting guides, and all the applique templates if you haven't already!
***IF you're not planning on making the full quilt and would like to stop at this point after Block 2, you can! It'll just read "Beautiful Things are Made. You won't want to trim the bottom of your block off, and you'll add your bottom "stamp" applique pieces and additional sashing with Blizzard Shimmer before quilting/binding it.
Let me know if you have other questions or concerns, but let's dive right in!
Here's the download link for the Block 2 instructions so you can get started:

Hi! I'm Madi Hastings, quilt pattern and surface designer! My obsessions are many, including cooking, plant science, and books, but I'll try to narrow down my geeky-ness to pattern design and quilting for the purpose of this blog!
