I've finally finished the center of
I started working on the "outer" border and should have it all completed by tomorrow or Sunday.
See the mini triangles?
I'll be adding those on the outer border.
So, while I was working on these blocks,
I thought, "Hey! Why not put up pictures with instructions on this quilt? Kinda like a Tutorial!"
You'll only need to make these 2 blocks...
Several times, of course.
We'll start with the 4 patch.
Cut 3-1/2 inch strips - royal blue and a variety of plaids.
Sew these strips together - side by side.
Once sewn, cut the strips at 3-1/2 inches, into a 2 block.
Then, sew these 2 blocks with another 2 blocks to make a 4 patch block.
I'll give out the exact amount of blocks that I needed for a single quilt....
Didn't think to take the number done.
But you need to make a bunch of 4 patch blocks.
Next, cut a 6-1/2 inch white background... or beige or white on white or black on white, or whatever.
You need a pale color block, cut at 6-1/2 inch.
Cut some plaid blocks at 3-1/2 inch square and put 'em on the edge of your white 6-1/2 inch block. Here, I took a chalk line and marked from edge to edge.
Sew along your chalk line and cut 1/4 inch off, once sewn.
See those 2 pieces of triangles that I cut off? I saved 'em and that's what I made the mini triangles with.... on the outer border of this quilt.
Here's a picture of one of my mini triangles.
Before I sewed my mini triangles, I squared 'em up to 2-1/2 inches.
Will post final pictures of "Easy Al", once its all quilted and bound. AND, I'll post the amount of blocks required to make a single quilt.
Have Super Saturday!
