One of my bees received a lot of fabric from a lady and we’ve been working on making quilts for nursing homes, Habitat, and other good causes in our areas. This is one made from some of the blue fabric.
Makes a 16 1/2″ block. For one block you need:
4 – 5 x 8 1/2 print rectangles
8 – 2 1/4 x 8 1/2 solid strips
Now sew a white strip to each long side of the purple. I pressed my seam to the purple. Just be consistent and press from the top.
Now sew the 2 sections together, nesting the center seam. Like this.
A 3 block by 4 block quilt is 48 1/2″ x 64 1/2″
A 3 block by 5 block quilt is 48 1/2″ x 80 1/2″
A 4 block by 5 block quilt is 64 1/2″ x 80 1/2″
A 5 block by 6 block quilt is 80 1/2″ x 96 1/2″
This isn’t high on my list of quilts to finish by I’ll work on it in little bits of time I have. Perhaps I’ll sew the strips on the rectangles as if they were my leaders and enders.
If you make this quilt, send me a picture and I’ll post it on my blog.
Thanks for stopping by.
