Little Treasures June 2014

2014-04Today I present you with June’s Little Treasures block and this is probably one of my favorites so far. Simple and fun, but what I love the most about it is the green color I chose for the dress and lollipop. Who wouldn’t love that hat either. I just think it’s such a fun fun block. I hope you will enjoy it to. Oh I know this sample block here doesn’t show the green, this one is shown in pink colors, but when I was making mine, I simply grabbed green fabric, so check out the sample below. :)

The artwork is from Graphics and Graphics.

This design was created in Electric Quilt v7Bernina Designer Plus Software, Make The Cut Software along with Brother Canvas.

This block incorporates my newest technique which can be found here and here.

This lesson is in three parts, it is also encompassed in the May Block and the June Block.

This is the finished block, it’s just a tone on tone green, but I think that because of the lime nature that it turns out I really like the block. Fabrics for this block were cut using my Brother Scan N Cut.

As you can see, this is a pretty simple block.

The dimensional shape is the pocket on this block and the tutorial covers the flowers on the hat.

I had been thinking it would be cool to do a YoYo for the Lollipop, but I am horrible at yoyo blocks. :)

    Hi Marian. Your block is so darling. The green you chose is perfect and goes so well with everything else. I have been trying to match your colors, and although green is my favorite color and I have lots of green fabric, I don’t have anything that will come close to this. I am going to keep a lookout for some brighter green though than what I have so I can at least get closer to it.
    Practice on making the yoyo’s.They really aren’t that hard to make. So I hope to see some in the near future.
    Thanks for all you do for us. You are so talented and I really appreciate all your beautiful work. Have a great weekend!
