As promised yesterday, here is the second block for this week. I missed a week over the Christmas holidays, so it’s only fair that I come to you with an extra block to catch up.
It is quite a simple block, based on thin 1.5″ x 10.5″ strips (I actually cut them to 11″ to give me a little breathing room) subcut into 3.5″ x 3.5″ squares. And just rearranged randomly.
The instructions are all in this pdf: Stripy Squares.
As for yesterday’s block, the crucial thing is to ensure that your seam allowances are exactly 1/4″. Each stripes, once all sewn together, should be 1″ wide.
And here are all my blocks so far:
I’m really pleased with all of them. This weekend, I shall catch up on Jen‘s blocks, and they will be aqua. There.
I’m looking forward to seeing what everybody’s doing!
