Start with a pattern you can get for free at:
Theirs is for 6" blocks and I made mine smaller and made up a Master sheet so I could make copies of it and save some paper.
Start by choosing your colors and pinning on #1. (#2, 3 and 5 are background pieces. #1 and 4 are kiss parts.) I'm using pink or white for the kiss parts.
(Make sure the #1 piece is pretty side out on the unprinted side.)
Place the #2 piece, (green and white print) face up, and leaving enough seam allowance. Set your machine for small stitches. (On mine I use 15 stitches to the inch.) Now back stitch at beginning, sew along the line, then back stitch at the end of the seam. Easy-Peasy.
Now trim off the strip of #2 fabric... Never trim until it is flipped.
Now the #3 piece. Sewn, seam allowance trimmed, pressed, flipped and pressed again. I usually put a pin in this tail (top left) but I didn't show that part on a picture.
When your two halves are done you can make hugs, or turn the pieces around and....
make a kiss.
Here's our block on the design wall... just pinned - not yet sewn together. I might want to mix them up a bit before I sew.
(27 more blocks - 54 more blades to go)
The block just made is the lower left.
Linking up to Confessions of a Fabric Addict... see the sidebar for the location.
Next time I'll show my technique for sewing the blocks together.
Hugs, (and kisses)
