Friendship Quilt Along - Gracious Block



Happy Friday! We are already on Week 3 of the Friendship Quilt Along with Amanda Herring and Riley Blake Designs! Today the Gracious block pattern is being released! I love the appliqu├ęd scalloped flower!!!

I needed a cute Gracious Flower clutch to match to my Fun Flower Tote I made a few weeks ago...a girl needs to match :).  Plus my Best Buds pin looks perfect on my new clutch!



Supplies:

1. Friendship Quilt Along Templates
2. Hello Lovely Fabric- Amanda Herring
3. Heat N Bond Lite fusible adhesive (optional)
4. Friendship Quilt Along Kit
5. GRACIOUS block pattern

6. Best Buds pin




I used Heat N Bond Lite to fuse my shapes to the fabric then stitched along the edge with matching Aurifil thread. Plus the little flower button was a perfect fit!

I added a leaf to my scallop flower...this was a last minute design decision when I fused my flower off center on my pouch background. It turned out to be a happy oops :)

I also added a little handle so my clutch can be a wristlet....it makes it so much easier to hold when I'm running errands.



It's not too late to join in the Friendship Quilt Along...let's sew together! It is the perfect summer project!

The Friendship Quilt Along will release a new pattern/block (free) each week through August 31st. Each block contains a new technique and/or fun way to embellish it.  You can choose to sew the entire quilt or just a few blocks to make it your own!

The finished Friendship Quilt. 
If you want to join in and sew the full quilt- I highly recommend the kit! Available here.


I am loving Amanda's newest fabric collection - Hello Lovely!!! Here is a peek of my fat quarter bundle along with my Best Buds pin!

I hope you decide to join the Friendship Quilt Along and with sew us! Sewing with friends is the best! I love the flexibility of the Friendship Quilt as you can choose to make the entire quilt or just a few of the blocks.  Plus the Hello Lovely fabric is absolutely gorgeous!!! I have quite a few upcoming projects planned with Hello Lovely!

Have a great day and happy sewing!
