I realize that I shared a Poinsettia Applique Block a few weeks ago. Basically, for that block I simply took the poinsettia I made for the Christmas Poinsettia Garland and “flattened” it. I think I would have preferred the applique block better if I had 2 more contrasting felts, but I know our readers make their own selections for fabric colors so I wasn’t too worried about it. It is a very simple design and sometimes simple is called for
But this week, when looking at Tomie dePaola’s book The Legend of the Poinsettia, I fell in love with his interpretation of the poinsettia, so I decided to make another poinsettia applique block… which from this day forward, shall be referred to as The Advent Poinsettia Applique Block! Obviously, this one is far more detailed, and I adore it. I will be using this design on several projects I have yet to finish.
Like all of our applique blocks, this one was designed to to fit on a 6″ x 6″ block but it can be enlarged or reduced to meet your needs. The pattern for the Advent Applique Block can be found HERE . Enjoy
