We’re on to Block 2 of the Patchwork Petals sewing party with Mister Domestic and me!

Now that you’re all caught up, let’s move on to Block 2, shall we?
Mathew is sewing along with his Loved to Pieces fabric collection and is giving away some amazing prizes as we sew along. Seriously, be sure to check out his blog and post your progress to Instagram using the hashtag #patchworkpetalsquilt
I also am loving Mathew’s video all about tips for fussy cutting when foundation paper piecing
Be sure to check out the Live Stream that Mathew and I hosted. We gave our favorite tips that will help you with Block 2.
Here are some links to things that I demonstrated:
• Daylight Company Wafer Lightbox
• Clear Cutting Mat
• Iris Swiss Super Fine Pins
Here’s another tip for Block 2:
Use your small scraps left over from the background of Block 1 for Block 2! I store mine in a Talenti gelato container. There are a number of small sections in Block 2. Don’t be intimidated—just piece as you have been doing. These small pieces allow for a smooth curve that looks like it was appliqued. Pretty sneaky, huh?
Here are some samples of my Patchwork Petals Block 2:
