Everyone is home today because it's too cold to go to school. No school tomorrow, either. I had big plans for quilting and writing tutorials, but apparently that is going to have to wait a few more days. In the meantime, I'm sewing as many blocks as I can between playing games, cooking, cleaning and laundry. Inspired by the economy block along on Instagram and fueled by my need for a new project in the new year....here's my latest WIP.
here that measures 5" finished. (That was a little too small for my liking.) I also found some measurements for 12" blocks (too large) and I tried measurements for 8" blocks, but 3 out of 4 of my points got chopped off. (I was starting to feel a little like Goldilocks. Ha!) I made 3 test blocks of my own before I came up with these measurements. I am using a scant 1/4" seam allowance throughout and the only trimming is chopping off the points. I thought I'd share the measurements if you want to try one or 20. (They are FUN!!!)
All measurements are CUT measurements.
Centers: One 4.5" square
Middle: Two 3.75" squares cut into half square triangles
Outer: Two 5" squares, cut into half square triangles
The block is 8.625" unfinished, which is sort of a funky size, but I figured it's the best option. Easy cutting, minimal trimming and no chopped off points. Good enough for me!
Happy Monday to you!
