2017 Block of the Month - November

Are we there yet? 

Just one more block and we can start putting this quilt together. Have you began thinking about how you are going to quilt it yet? As you know I love free motion quilting, but on this one I'm a bit stuck. Thank goodness there are another 75 quilts on the go to keep me busy while I work it out!

November's Block is called Strawberry Smoothie - although in my colourings, I'm thinking mango smoothie. I have always known this block as a type of Card trick - with the right colouring it can look very 3D.

Here is the layout and cutting guide for the block

A - 4 7/8" squares, cut once on the diagonal
B - 5 1/4"  squares, cut twice on the diagonal
C -  4 1/2"  square ( in either a colour OR a background fabric)

Firstly make your quarter square triangle units and your half square triangle units
 


Put the half square traingle units ( on the left in my pic) to one side.
Next use the quarter square unit ( on the right)  to make the finished quarter square blocks


Trim off the dog ears on the corners.

You now have all the units made to make up the block in three rows.
Lay them out before you sew to make sure you dont flip anything around the wrong way.



And that's it for another month. You'll be pleased to know life has settled down a bit. I'm going to update the makers album over the weekend, so keep an eye out for your blocks!
