Hi Quilty Friends! Today we are starting to sew the Small Leaves Block for the Prim & Proper Sew Along with Fat Quarter Shop! The Small Leaves Block is quick and fun to sew ... so it's a great week to catch up on Prim Flower blocks if you aren't finished yet. 

I am SO EXCITED to make this quilt and I LOVE all things designed by Lori Holt! Be sure to keep reading for tips on making your block - including bonus blocks !

I'm making my Prim & Proper Quilt with mixed Lori Holt collections as I couldn't pick just one! Yay for scrappy sewing with Lori Holt Fabrics...here's a peek of the fabrics I will be using!

Sewing Tips:
1. Use Alphabitties. They are so helpful in keeping your fabrics organized!
2. Use pins so your points match up. Magic Pins are my favorite!
3. Save the C / D / A trimmed off triangles. Sew the triangles together and make scrappy half square triangles. I trimmed mine to 3.5" and added them to my Lori Holt scrap bin! I used a Bloc-loc ruler for trimming for perfect half-square triangles!

Here's a peek at the finished Prim & Proper Quilt designed by Lori Holt. Fat Quarter Shop has the Prim & Proper Quilt Kit available that is the same as the Prim & Proper Book designed by Lori Holt!

Sewing Tips:
1. Use Alphabitties. They are so helpful in keeping your fabrics organized!
2. Make sure you keep you G and H fabrics separated. I didn't...oops so I had to recut/resew G and H as I mixed them up!
3. Use pins so your points match up. Magic Pins are my favorite!
