Here are the instructions for month two of the Glad Creations Faceted Jewels swap. I was able to work on it this weekend at our sewing retreat in LaGrange and there are a few corrections from the original information that I originally sent out.
Should you need a point of reference from your pattern please refer to page 3, step 2.
Cut 12, 2 ½ inch strips from your BACKGROUND
Cut 12, 2 ½ inch strips from your med/darks
For this one I didn’t sub cut these into shorter lengths, I decided to use the full length of the strip
Sew 1-background strip to 1 of the med/dark strips. Press toward the dark.
You will have 12 sets. Sub-cut these into 2 ½” x 4 ½”; you should have at least 208 pieces.
After I got them all sub-cut, I separated them into two stacks of 8. (I had 1 left over out of each pile) I hade 2 piles of each color and then paired them up so that I had 12 sets ready to sew into 4-patches.
You will need 96 to swap.
Sorting your piles – please make 10 stacks; one stack will only have 6.
This part was a little easier than last month.
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
