Hello fellow Bee Members
I'm Annette from Galway and I am delighted and excited to be in a bee for the first time. I searched for days to find a block that I liked and finally came up with this one. I hope you enjoy making it for me. Ruth very kindly up sized the block to 18 inches thanks Ruth.
Where it is white any low volume fabric, and the rest any bold vibrant colours.
(You will need Background fabric in low volume, colour 1 and vibrant colours 2, 3 & 4.)
You can find the full instructions here to view or download as a PDF:
The pattern is written with 4 colours and 3 different sized pieces. Replace the pieces on the pattern as below to make your block come out as 18.5” unfinished, 18” when finished in the quilt.
1A: (colour 1, piece size A) 3.5 x 6.5 X4
1B: (colour 1, piece size B) 3.5 x 3.5 X12
2B: (colour 2, piece size B) same as above but in a different colour 3.5 x 3.5 X4
3A: (colour 3 piece size A) 3.5 x 6.5 X4
4C: (colour 4, piece size C) 3 1/2" x 9.5 X4
Follow the instructions, using the strip and flip method to add squares 1B to the corners of 3A and 4C to make the long pointed sections and assemble the block as follows:
You will have 4 corners each measuring 9 1/2”x 9 1/2”.
Arrange as per the instructions and sew together to create an 18 1/2” x 18 1/2” block.
