Finished block size - 9.5" square (10" unfinished)
Materials needed for one block:
Novelty print -
2 pieces 4.5" by 10"
Coordinating fabric -
1 piece 2.5" by 10"
Background fabric -
4 - 2.5" squares
Note: I used my scraps the size they were after making sure I had a straight edge on them for seams. And then trimmed them to the final size.
Step 1: Sew the coordinating color between the two pieces of your novelty print. Press the seams in the direction that you want them to go. (I pressed them towards the coordinating color.)
Step 2: If needed square your blocks to 10" square in size.
Step 3: Place the 4 background fabric squares on the corners of your block. Sew from corner to corner (side to adjacent side) across the background fabric. Trim to a 1/4 seam.
Step 4: Press seam in the desired direction.
Step 5: Once you have all the blocks you want made, then lay them out in the desired pattern and sew your quilt top together. Finish as desired!
A possible layout will be coming in the next couple of days....but first I have to actually get the corners on my remaining blocks! That might take a day or two because I'm off to Casper for the second chemo treatment this evening (treatment is tomorrow morning) and I'm definitely not bouncing back from them as easily as I did yrs ago.....the joys of getting older.
1. Spring break is next week - I'll have the time to get some of this commissioned sewing finished up and off to where it should be. =)
2. Got my first paycheck for the PT job - woohoo...........
