First Block of Month Club-Wool

I ordered a wool block of the month club from Primitive Gatherings. This is my first ever block of the month club. I decided on this one because it is not a quilt, each block stands on it's own. There is a wooden display piece to display a single block each month which makes it unique. Anna from Wooly Mammoth told me about it and I signed right up.

I received the blocks for December and January and the backround last week so today I decided to work on January's block (I can do December later to display next year).

January's block:

First I had to trace the pattern in reverse, you'll see why in a minute

Then I had to trace the reversed pattern on fusible web, I used "Lite Steam-A-Seam 2"
I traced all the pieces on the fusible web and assembled my block to make sure I had all the pieces:
Then I peeled off the backing, I must admit I forgot to do this with the snow drops and had to cut more out of the fusing.
Then using an iron I pressed it to my fabric to fuse it and cut out each piece.

I peeled off the top protective sheet, leaving the fusible web exposed.

I put the fusible side down on the backround fabric:
I put all the pieces in place and fused them together. (This is the reason you reverse the pattern)


Now I have stitch down all the pieces and do the embroidery work. It's going to be so cute, can't wait to see how it turns out.
