Most of my applique blocks are quilt-as-you-go because I prefer to do the applique stitching through all layers and it is just so much easier to quilt small blocks than it is a large quilt. My flower blocks which have added stitching are all done this way. After launching my new flower block quilt "Flower Garden" I had a customer ask "how do you add a layered block into a pieced quilt design?" .....I decided to share the answer here on my blog.

Half Square Triangle Blocks for a new Quilt

This being said, it is easy enough to reduce the size of many blocks by simply printing the templates at 90% of the actual size.
