Sonoran Trail Sew Along- Block 5

The Sonoran Trail Sew Along has now ended.  You can find any missed blocks or the full pattern for this beautiful southwestern themed quilt HERE.

Sonoran Trail was created with southwestern influences, as I have spent the better part of the past few years exploring the beautiful vistas of Arizona.  Sonoran Trail takes from all those experiences.

The Sonoran Trail Sew Along has now ended.  You can find any missed blocks or the full pattern for this beautiful southwestern themed quilt HERE.

This particular quilt pattern is done in wool blend applique sewn onto 100% cotton fabric.  My instructions include information for that technique, but you can always change it out and create it with traditional applique!

If you do choose to use blended wool, be sure to check out Over the River Felt for the Sonoran Trail Collection, made specifically for this pattern! And you can find my instructions on Wool Blend Applique HERE!

If you are doing wool blend applique, or fused traditional applique, the applique piece and template will be the exact same size.  (If you decide to do needle turn applique, you will need to add a small seam allowance around each shape).
