Simple Sampler Quilt Along Details (includes a pic of the quilt)
This week we have a 6-Grid Chain, these are great blocks to alternate in quilt tops, and a perfect addition to our sampler -
To make the Chain block you need:
6 - 2 1/2" squares from two fabrics
From your solid:
4 - 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles
4 - 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" rectangles
Lay out your pieces in the block formation, we will work from the center out.
Our second block is variation of a 4-patch, we are adding hourglass blocks to it.
2 - 6 1/2" squares in one fabric
1 - 7 1/2" squares in two different fabrics - these will be your hourglass blocks.
With your ruler lined up on the 45 line, also mark the center of the hourglass at 3 1/4". Trim two sides, then turn your block line it up again, and trim the other two sides.
**After you make your blocks, post about them on your blog (or flickr), then post a link here:
Please post a permalink, do this by clicking on the title of your post, and copy that url, then paste it in the linky. Thanks!
How are you doing with these? Little more tricky, but fun - I love the variety we are getting :) My blog will be down this week for a few hours of maintenance and so I made a pdf of the instructions, the file is pretty big, but it's all there!
