our summer freebie…Summer Blooms…visuals

By now many of you have received your finishing kits for the Summer Freebie…Thank you so much for doing so…we love that we can give you all the blocks free during the summer

event and we appreciate that you like our finished quilt enough to purchase our finishing kit and again support my business.  Again… THANK YOU!

I thought I would share with you how simple it was to do this curved inner border.  I am not giving you specific directions in hope that you will have purchased or will now consider purchasing the finishing kit after you see how easy it was done.001

In the first photo I have stitched the setting triangles and the blocks together into rows, stitched the rows together and then added the borders…as you can see my borders did not have to be this big…but I have never done this before so I didn’t know…The finishing direction will tell you what size to cut your border to…I used a small plate to draw my curves….I have given you the curve in the pattern so no need to audition your plates like I had to do…Trace the curve with your Clover liquid chalk pen.


In the second photo I have cut away the excess border not needed.  I trimmed it right on the line…

In the third photo I placed the top onto a tan print square, folded the top back and added little dots of Roxanne’s Glue on the edges.  Then secured it flat onto the tan fabric.  Then the last picture shows the vine placed on the edge of the two fabrics along with some new appliquéd flowers and some from the blocks.  004 If you have changed your mind and now would like to order a finishing kit for your freebie blocks you can do so HERE  We will only take orders this week yet to ensure you get a kit.    Also this is your last reminder to order a finishing kit for the Words to Live by…quilt.  You can purchase that HERE  Hope you enjoyed this little peek at how this was stitched.

Tomorrow I will talk about the Pieced block of the week…LB

    Hi Lisa, So glad that I already have this finishing kit, it’s a real beauty. Still working on the blocks, but hope to finish by Christmas. My introduction to sewing with wool on fabric has been wonderful. Thanks so much.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you!!

    I purchased the finishing kit and was reading the instructions and if someone could have animated the moment I got to these steps, there would have been HUGE question marks all around my head. I’m a VERY visual learner and really needed these pictures and details. Again, thank you!

    P.S. I hope in the SBOW you explain the font and size you used for the lettering as I have my own idea for the finishing of this quilt and need that information 🙂

    LOVELY…I LOVE it Lisa, quick question if you ordered the finishing kit for Summer block of the week do you also need to order this finishing kit? If I do need to order it let me know because i’m in 🙂 I haven’t started the freebies yet but this has me fired up to continue with the SBOW blocks (all are prepped and I’m moving along with the hand stitches) so I can get to these. I even know exactly which walls both will hang on! Anywho, let me know and I’ll call and order unless you can take this as my authorization to order. 🙂

    Excellent items from you, man. I’ve remember your stuff previous
    to and you are simply extremely great. I actually like what you’ve received
    here, certainly like what you’re stating and the way in
    which by which you say it. You are making it enjoyable and you still take care of
    to keep it sensible. I can not wait to read much more from you.
    That is actually a great website.

    It’s just a matter of locating the right destination to get what you would like.
