2017 Block of the Month - June

JUNE?? Really? Where does the time go....

Before we go too much further, its time to remind you to make sure you have enough of your background fabric to use for the plain borders. 

I did talk about this in the fabric reqs at the very beginning of this project - so this is just a timely reminder if you havent because you'll be running out of lenghthy background soon!


Here's what I said... 
"Fabric requirements...
I designed this quilt to use scraps, fat quarters, etc. If you choose just 5 or 6 prints and a background, that will work too!
The background will require around 4.5 m according to EQ7. 
If you want to cut off the long borders first then cut off 2.1m of fabric 
First border - cut 4"
Second border - cut 6"
Set these aside for later, you can now use the remaining background fabric in your blocks"


This Months block is called Ornate Star.

Here is the key and rotary cutting instructions for this block.. 



So reading off the "map" of our block 
A - 2 7/8 " Squares ,
cut once on the diagonal to yield 2 triangles  ( background)
B - 5 1/4" Squares, cut twice on the diagonal to yield 4 triangles (background, main and accent)
C - 4 1/2" squares ( 1 in accent colour)
D - 3 3/8" squares ( 4 in accent colour)


Putting this block together should be a breeze - you all seem to be coping really well with the general construction so far. 
Its made in rows, like many of the other blocks. 
Here is the layout. 



Here are my sewing pics for the units ..



These are made like last months block  - ( pin the edge you want to sew and you wont muck it up)



Then join them together and your star points are made. Youll be making 4 like this.



The other 4 blocks are "square in a square" blocks. 



Once you have them made, grab your centre square and start making rows.



And the finished block...



Next months block is a similar construction. Heres a look at it. 
Its the same block, without the detail in the corners. 



Lets see who gets it made before I put the instructions up....
