Super Bloom – Block 1

Updated: Jun 23, 2021

I can’t believe how fast time is flying by!

I still remember when I visited Antelope Valley last year and experienced the magic of the Super Bloom for the first time.

Those little flowers cover the rolling hills of California with a beautiful orange blanket.

They remind me in some way of the blooms on my mother’s Polish pottery.

The abundance of flowers reflects not only in nature, but also in our Super Bloom collection. I am so excited to be releasing more beautiful bundles from this collection on our website.

I enjoy making so many fun projects from this collection. One of my favorite is the Super Bloom Block of the Month (BOM). I as so excited to be making this project with you for the next few months!

Let’s get started on the first block.

Following the cutting directions in the pattern, you can prepare all the pieces needed for Block 1.

Or we have them pre-cut for you!

Block 1 is so cute! I always start by laying out all my pieces.

We will be completing this block in units.

Let’s begin with the Flying Geese Unit made from 2 pink Half Square Triangles (HST) and 1 light Quarter Square Triangle (QST).

Place pink HST triangle, right sides together, with the light QST triangle. Then sew using a quarter inch seam allowance.

Repeat with the other pink HST.

Press and trim – make 4.

Next select 2 pink QST and 2 light QST.

Position 1 light and 1 pink QST, right sides together, then sew. I like to practice my chain sewing when doing those!

Push seam allowances toward pink.
