2017 Block of the Month - September

Nearly there Folks! As you may have noticed I've been working down the block  layout of the original design as I have a number of ladies who are already starting to put their quilt rows together and are quilting it!! They are doing quilt-as-you-go, one of my favourite ways of tackling a larger quilt.
I have given it much thought but have decided to quilt mine the traditonal way and put it all together first. 

This months block is called "Girls favourite" - aptly named for the pretty icecream sunday colours I've used in the block. ( a complete coincidence I can assure you)

Here is the layout and cutting guide for the block 


A - 3 1/2 " squares 
B - 4 1/4" squares, cut twice on the diagonal to yield 4 triangles
C - 3 7/8"  squares, cut once on the diagonal to yield 2 triangles 
D - 2 5/8" squares

For this block we need to make the side units and the centre as two separate units, then join them together. Here is what the centre looks like. The easist way to achieve this is to make 4 half square triangles and sew them together. 




Next we get to work on the side units. They begin like this - a D square with two Bs attached.
Take care to get those B's sewn to the right edges. They're easy to muck up!




Now we make the triangles that sit either edge of this unit. My top tip here is to lay it all out in piles next to the sewing machine so you cant pick up the wrong piece!

Make the light/dark pink triangles first...

Then sew then to one side of the base unit and press. 

Finish the unit by sewing the last pink/red triangle to the opposite edge and press.

Now you are ready to construct the block. 
Follow the plan below to finish Girls Favourite. 

I hope you are enjoying making the blocks - only three to go now!
