Bloom Sew Along with Lori Holt of Bee in my Bonnet

Hello everyone! It's the start of Lori Holt's brand new Bloom Sew Along today and we are so excited to join the fun! For this Sew Along, we will be sewing the Bloom Quilt using Lori's Sew Simple Shapes templates and her Calico Days fabric collection for Riley Blake Designs

Ready to get started? Download Lori's fabric requirements, or if you want to save the hassle from picking and choosing which Calico Days fabrics you want to use, we created the Bloom Quilt Kit and Backing Set just for you with all of the fabrics you need (and then some) to make your quilt!  

From now until June 6, we will be sewing once block per week with Lori starting with block 1 today. Here is ours....

Visit Lori's blog every Monday for her tips and tricks for each Bloom block and visit our blog for a monthly recap on the 18th. We would love to see your bloom blocks on Instagram with #bloomsewalong !

I know I am jumping way, way ahead...but how do you quilt the three layers of a quilt with so much beautiful appliqué?

I am new to applique. Having trouble with my interfacing tearing. Did not buy from the FQS. Does your tear? I need help! !Thanks Wilma. wilmaquilts24@gmail.com

I bought my interfacing from JoAnn's. I got the light-weight Pellon and also the pattern tracing Pellon that was recommended as an alternative. I tried the light-weight Pellon and it tore for me, too. So now I am using the other interfacing and having more success. You have to be careful when turning-it's kind of fussy.
I'm wondering, too, how we are going to quilt this when finished!
