Appliqué Blocks


1. Referring to House Block Appliqué Placement Diagram, position house, door, and roof appliqué pieces on a light tan tone-on-tone 10" background square. The roof should overlap the house upper edge by 1/8". Allow a margin of 1-1/4" at top and bottom to prevent appliqué pieces from being caught in seam allowances. Fuse all pieces in place following manufacturer’s instructions.

2. Set your machine for a zigzag stitch with a short stitch length (8–10 stitches per inch). Using brown thread, machine-appliqué around house, door, and roof pieces. Sew black button to door appliqué to make house block.

3. Referring to Heart Block Appliqué Placement Diagram, center heart appliqué piece on remaining light tan tone-on-tone 10" background square. Fuse in place following manufacturer’s instructions. Machine-zigzag-stitch around heart with brown thread to make heart block.
