Bloom Sew Along: Block 1


Today is the Day! Thank you for joining us for the Bloom Sew Along. Each week we will feature several variations of a new block, so you will have lots of inspiration for your quilt!


For complete tutorials of each block, be sure to visit Lori’s blog. Are you ready to get started?


Here you can see a picture of the finished Quilt. This week we are featuring block number one.


To make this quilt, you will need:

  • Bloom Sew Simple Shapes
  • Clover 1/4″ Bias Tape Maker
  • Fiskars 8 1/2″ Ruler
  • Clover Press Perfect Point Turner
  • Pellon Sew-In Lightweight Interfacing
  • Matching 100% Cotton Thread (Aurifil Happy Colors by Been in My Bonnet is recommended)
  • Free Pattern


I am working on my first block in the Bloom Sew along and I just need to add my leaves and it is finished.


I love the bright, cheerful colors!


Here is the back side of my shape lined with Pellon.  Watch the video that Lori and I have prepared for you to take you through the first block step by step.


Now wait, we have more to show you!


Also joining us today is Jina from Jina Barney Designz. Jina chose to use a fun combination of prints from Hope Chest 2, which features reproduction designs from the 1930’s.

The cute background fabric on this block comes from the Lovebugs Collection.


Fortunately for us, Jina plans on making the entire quilt out of these sweet prints. We think it will look absolutely charming!


Join us each Monday as we share each finished block with all tips and tricks to get it done.
