A few hours late but hopefully you will forgive me? This one has quite a lot of pieces and I was out most of the weekend. This pattern is free to download from Craftsy until the next block is issued on 2nd March. Previous templates are available if you missed out, see the bottom of this post or email me for details.
This pattern includes the same instructions for applique as before, and the same instructions as the Fuchsia block for the background, but with new templates for the marigold. The instructions are: turned edge and raw edge machine applique, piecing the improv background, thread choices and the pattern in standard and mirrored formats depending on which type of applique you opt for.
I’m on the end of an e-mail if you get stuck, just leave a comment here or email me.
We’re nearly there now, just one more block to go and we move on to assembling the top!

Because of the whole VAT thing that’s changed in the EU, I have had to adapt the way the BOM works. I can no longer offer the back patterns at $1.50, they are now $2, I hope that’s OK. There will be a discount on the whole BOM when it’s finished but this is still the most economical way to get a block or two if you missed one. This extra cost covers the extra fees I now have to cover as I now offer these patterns for sale in three locations, some taking as much as a 50% cut.
At the time of writing, I’ve still got blocks 1-5 to be uploaded in various places because I am slow and lazy. I will be changing Etsy back to auto download in the coming weeks as they have changed their policy, which is excellent news. So the two sites to pay attention to for back patterns for now are
The free pattern will continue to be available through Craftsy initially but is removed after the free period is over.
