Peace Quilt Block

 Last week I carved out a little time to sew the Peace quilt block.

 It's a fusible applique pattern.  I like to use Heat 'n Bond Lite for my fusible applique.

 I iron all of my fabrics before applying the fusible web.  This is the back of the green I used for the leaves and stems, ready to press.

 I enjoy the process of cutting out the pieces.  These are the red flower petals.

 In this stage I am sorting out the pieces on my ironing board and preparing to fuse them to the background block.

All the pieces have been applied to the background.  The next step will be sewing a tiny zigzag stitch over the edges of each patch.  

 The Peace quilt block pattern is available in my Etsy shop, here:  Peace Applique Quilt Block Pattern

 When it is finished, it will be a nice companion to my Hope quilt block.  I'm planning on sewing four different applique blocks and putting them together into a small quilt.
