A good friend of mine has been working on a quilt for quite a while. She has come to the realisation that she is not interested in machine sewing any more. So, I received a parcel in the mail. Included was a pile of fabric, some strips sewn together, large blocks cut and other blocks sewn again. What was I to do but get them all out and sort them out. Work out what she had in mind and go forward and finish it off for her. She is so special..Here is what I got..... such lovely bright fabrics....
|Oh my. What's in the box.... what a challenge.|
Time to sor the box full of goodies out. Then work out what can I do with them. The aim is for something to make a king single quilt.
|A box full of goodies. Fabric, strips, blocks, scraps and 1/2 square triangles.|
|Strips ready to be sewn|
|Fun colourful strips crosscut and sewn into half square triangle blocks.|
|The strips need cross cutting|
Place the 2 blocks together after they have been placed in opposite directions. You will end up with fun half square triangles.
|13" blocks to be sewn 1/4" around all sides and then cut diagonally.|
These are the blocks that will be sewn together. SOMEHOW....
|A 9.5" block|
