I didn’t get that much accomplished today. I attended a group bee meeting and then had to buy groceries and pick up our dog from the kennel and I think I piddled on the computer most of the afternoon.
Julie’s block is from Anita Grossman Solomon book titled “Rotary Cutting Revolution” and she choose to do her blocks in Christmas fabrics and I highly recommend her book. It was fun to do and relatively fast to construct. I decided to do 2 blocks.
You start with 2 8-inch blocks, right sides together, leaving a 2-inch opening at the top right and the lower left on the opposite side. Sew with your ¼” seam, then you cut on the diagonal from the two sewn sides, then stack them on top of one another.
Cut a 2-inch strip and then another 2-inch strip from the other side. I pressed to the dark side and it is best to lay out your pieces so that you get the right ones sewn together.
Then you just sew them together and then you trim down your blocks and you are done.
Aren’t they cute!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads, love and hugs.
