Whimsy Blocks - XO Applique Block


Hugs and Kisses, what more can I say? We could all use some extra of these right now.

I've heard from lots of you and it seems like the blocks are coming along just dandy. At the end of this post I will have the links to the other Whimsy Blocks that have been released just in case you missed one.

If you aren't signed up for the newsletter and want to get in on the fun, you can sign up here. That way the blocks will be emailed to yu as soon as they are out each month.

You can see the video here on my YouTube channel if you want more info about the blocks in general.

So let's get started on the XO Block! 

 Get the pattern here.


All 12 of the Whimsy Blocks are 8.5" x 8.5" with a finished size of 8" x 8". The pattern pieces are reversed and ready for tracing on to fusible backed webbing. If you want to know more about doing applique with this method, you can read this post here. 

I chose to use a straight stitch and leave the edges raw for the blocks. I choose a variegated rainbow colored thread. That way I can use the thread on all 12 blocks in my quilt. 


What to make with this applique? There will be 12 blocks in this series so you could make each block every month and put them together in a wall quilt. That was my first project with the 12 blocks. This block is also the perfect size for a mini quilt or a mug rug. You could put it on a pillow or a t-shirt. The possibilities are endless.
