Happy Monday! I'm all set and ready to share the next two blocks, are you ready!? Just in case you are starting now, these will catch you up -
Simple Sampler Quilt Along Details (includes a pic of the quilt)
I have a flickr group here too! Amy's Creative Side on Flickr
Also, if you have one block smaller than the other, most likely your seam allowance is a teeny bit big. If you were making the same block for an entire quilt it wouldn't matter too much, you could just trim them all to the same size. With this sampler, you could trim all to the same size when you find your smallest block after sewing them all. Or, if you would like to have more accurate seams check out my tutorial - Sewing Accurate 1/4" Seams.
Here's our first block for this week: Plus
Here's what you need:
From one fabric cut
1 - 4 1/2" x 12 1/2" rectangle and 2 - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" squares
From a second fabric cut
4 - 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" squares
If you need help with cutting go back and look at the first set of instructions, or ask in the comments.
Then layout as shown here:
From one fabric -
2 - 6 1/2" squares and 4 - 3 1/2" squares
From a second fabric -
4 - 3 1/2" squares
Lay them out to make sure you have it in the right spots.
It's been fun to go visit and see your blocks, feel free to post to your flick picture if you aren't blogging.
Let me know if you have any questions! I will answer them in the comments :)
