Have you seen the Ukulele Lei block in the current issue of Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks, Volume 8? It's the first block in the magazine, block #701, designed by Sandi Colwell. I'm so glad Trent asked for this block for his quilt. I knew I wanted to sew this block the first time I laid eyes on it.
Lovely blue background fabric.
The basic pieces of the block, all cut out.
Fused in place, with the body of the ukulele zig zag stitched.
More edge stitching.
All zig-zagging complete.
Stitching the flower details.
Simple, but effective flower centers.
The ukulele strings complete the block. Aloha!
Until next time...please visit the Curlicue Creations Shop...and have a super day!
