June SCRAP BEE Block from glen
Let me say up front, this is not a precise piecing type block. Sometimes you don't really know how large the block or the leaf will end up to be. Think Buggy Barn technique and let your mind blow!
If want to try curves, let's see if I can intelligently walk you through an easy way to do them. If you don't want to do curves, or the fear factor is high, then keep reading to the end and you will see an alternate way to play.
Cut the leaf in half. Either curvy or straight. I did my first two straight.
Hunt in your scraps to find the leaf's spine. Sew it together --- oops! No thread in the machine! And trim for desired look.
Press. Voila! You have a leaf! These are so fun!
If you do not want to piece a curve, make some green fabric by sewing your scraps together.
