Beach Huts – Pieced Background with Bondaweb Appliqué finished size – 20”x9”
This block has been made by piecing the base and using Bondaweb appliqué on top, if however, you have another preferred method of appliqué, go for it!
Please take a few moments to read through the instructions before you begin.
When using Bondaweb, please follow the manufacturer’s instructions…… please don’t forget to reverse your pattern or you’ll end up with a seagull landing from the wrong direction and your flags flying in a tornado!
Beach Huts – the back ground has been pieced for this block, the finished size of which should be 20” x 9” plus seam allowances. I’ve indicated on the pattern the sizes you need to cut and piece together, also listed here…..
these sizes include your seam allowance….
1/Sky – 20.5” x 5.5”
8 x Huts – 3” x 4.5” (lots of different colours!!)
Join all of the huts in a line, then add the sky along the length of your huts above. (or below, as in the photo that I can’t get to turn around!!!)
Trace each outline of the roofs onto your Bondaweb as instructed by the supplier. (I used a rule to ensure the lines were straight) Please remember to reverse your pattern for the flags and seagulls, as you trace the design onto your Bondaweb (smooth side) or they will face the other way.
Iron your Bondaweb onto the back of your chosen appliqué fabrics, cut carefully on your pencil line. Remove the paper and place onto your block. Iron each piece into place. I then machine stitched around all of the applique pieces to hold them in place and protect the raw edges. I used a zigzag, (length 0.5, width 1.5) but you might like to use a fancy stitch or two?
The base of each roof is 2.5” wide and 2” high at its pinnacle.
Doors all range from 1”> 1.5” across and 1.75”>2.25” high.
Circles are 1” across the centre. Use as many of these as you fancy.
Add bunting strips the width of the huts, I made mine curve from side to side of an individual beach hut and had 7 flags on each string, all cut in one piece. Make yours as you would want.
Seagulls and flags are also at your discretion!
I hope you enjoy this block as much as I did!!
