Let the quilting begin!
I am on BYC often, and I will be available to answer questions, and all who send blocks will receive blocks from whoever else takes part. I ask that when you ship all of your blocks, add a large SASE (self-addressed stamped envelope) for easy block shipment. ALL BLOCKS are sent to me (yes, even yours your keeping) so that I can be sure every pile of blocks sent out contains one from every single sender. It’s confusing to keep track of 12 - 15 different piles, and who doesn't need one. I want no mistakes, so make and send them all.
TO SIGN UP: Please put "SIGN ME UP" OR "YES, I'M IN" or something all by itself in a post on the forum. (Or, put it first, then elaborate) Please post you want to be involved HERE on THIS THREAD.
This will be the Arrowhead block
This will make an 11.5" block
Number of Blocks: 12
Due Date: August 23rd
One 10" square can be a print of any kind with a contrasting solid 10" square. You can make the blocks the same or all different.
You can follow these instructions or go to the web site
I made the block using a 10" pre-cut the finished block is 11.5 x 11.5 the cuts on the 10" block was 2.5 inches, these cuts are different than in the instructions use 2.5" cuts on your block
you sew 2 10 inch squares right sides together, using 1/4" seam, Sewing 2" from the top right edge, pivot 1/4" from the corner and sew to the bottom left edge, sewing 2" from the left edge,sew to the top left corner, pivot 1/4" sew to starting point, top right edge.
cut the unit diagonally through the sewn corners, stack the triangles, carefully aligning all edges,make sure you place the cut triangles together as shown in the diagram. Measure 2.5" from the left edge and cut through all layers, Without disturbing the stack, measure 2.5" from the bottom edge and cut through all layers. Iron, arrange the units as shown, sew and trim to 11.5"
I have included the site link so you can down load the instructions or you can just follow the instructions above.
