For July we are going to make a quilt inspired by these designs.
From the fabric you have received you should be able to make two improv Rail Fence blocks as outlined below:
Select a print fabric: You will need to add a print fabric from your stash to make two improv Rail Fence blocks. Please ensure that the value of the fabric is lighter than the solid fabric given to you.
How do I determine if the value of the print fabric is lighter than the solid fabric? Take a picture of the two fabrics with your phone and apply a black & white filter. If the fabric appears lighter than the solid one it is the right choice.
Cut both fabrics into three strips 5″ x 14″.
Collate the strips as shown below and cut the strips down the middle without a ruler.
Piece the two opposite colored strips together yielding 6 strips as shown below
Each strip should yield three 4.5″ x 4.5″ blocks for eighteen blocks in total as shown below. You should have enough allowance to trim down the blocks to that size.
These blocks will yield two larger blocks as shown below. The blocks should be mirror images of each other.
The blocks are due by the September meeting. Thank you all for being so proactive and contributing towards the charity quilts.
