All instructions for my block can be found here.
But as that block is all in green and cream and I'd like to receive them in whites and/or neutrals + light & dark (er) blues, here's my version of this 12" block
What you need:
4 light blue pieces of fabric measuring 3.5" x 6.5"
4 dark blue pieces of fabric measuring 3.5" x 6.5"
16 white/neutral 3.5" squares (of fabric)
Sew each square to a blue strip and not like me (above) just on one end ...
I was halfway here.
I have a special request: please sew twice:
- from corner to corner
- the other sewing line half an inch to the left or right, towards the bit you'll be cutting off. This will give you (or me) an extra 16 squares of 2" (1.5" finished).
Don't worry about their size: I have a fabulous Block-o-lock template of 2" and I will cut them all to size.
(in case you're wondering, it's Pointless).
Please iron to the dark blue side but not to the light blue side. Otherwise the pieces will not nest together at the next sewing step:
dark blue: iron seam to the dark
light blue: iron to the white/neutral
|Here I'm cutting that extra half square triangle off|
Here they are all together: seems a pity to waste them even though they're small. If you'll send them all (192 squares0)to me I can either use them on the back or start on another Siblings Together quilt.
The only thing to watch when sewing these together, is the placing of the blues so they'll match.
I'm not a fast sewer and it took me about 90 minutes to make this block (I have all sorts of distractions).
Hope you'll have fun making them.
I'm looking forward to receiving your blocks!
