I didn't really want to start any new projects yet, wanted to focus on those UFOs but my son's history teacher, who is also my co-worker, is having a baby girl in March and with how slow I am working lately, that deadline is getting close...So, I decided I better get it started.
My son helped me design this on EQ7
The quilt is about 45 X 55. If you would like to join me, I would love to see what you make.
Here is the fabric you will need:
Pink- 1 an 1/4 yards
Yellow- 7/8 yard (I used 2 different ones that are very similar)
Dark Blue corner squares-3/8 yard
Purple corner squares-1/8 yard
Light Blue back ground-1 yard
Cutting Directions for the 12 Nine patch blocks:
48 Dark blue squares- 2 1/2 inches square
48 yellow bricks- 4 1/2 X 2 1/2
12 center squares- 4 1/2 inces square
These go together really quickly! Sew 2 yellow bricks to opposite sides of the pink squares, two blue squares to the ends of half of the yellow bricks and them sew them together as pictured below. I always, always pin to match up seams!
Step 2 will be tomorrow or Monday, depending on how easy it is to find a background that I like.
