I’m beyond excited to share the July block from Heartland Heritage with you today. This sewing machine quilt block is all about the cutting. Let’s take a look and see how it turned out.

Fabric pull for the sewing machine block in Heartland Heritage

The sewing machine block requires background fabric and 3 colors. Here are the fabrics I selected from my stash.

It's time to start the pre work on our Sugar Bloom Block quilt pattern. Today is all about cutting so that next time we can get straight to sewing.

Before I sliced into my fabric, I gave everything a quick spritz of starch. This helps prevent stretching and torquing of those smaller pieces. *Interested in learning more about starch? I wrote an article about the pro’s & con’s of starch here.

I like to lay out all of my block pieces to help keep me on track. This way, I am sure not to mix something up during the sew process.

Pressing quilt blocks | Heartland Heritage

Pressing counts in quilting! The best thing you can do is keep your seams flat. I like to use my Oliso iron with a go spritz of Soak Wash flatter spray. I swear, I own every scent they make and just love the way it works!

This little bottle of liquid gold is one of my favorite sewing tools. Not only does it helps keep everything flat and smooth but it smells great. Check out the full list of must haves.
