QNT Black & white & PURPLE all-around 2019
7-10-19 thru 8-5-19
--2 different blocks to your partner
--PURPLE print #7 2019
This year lets use different prints and colors than we did last year. Think outside your normal choices to add some spice to this years blocks.
This block series will be a great way to use up some small scraps of fabrics from our stash, or you can go buy more fabric in quarter yard cuts..…you have my permission!
Each month we will exchange 2 different blocks with one partner, and keep 2 blocks for ourselves.
Please note that the instructions below are for ONE block only, you will have to repeat it 4 times to get the suggested 2 different blocks to send and 2 blocks to keep.
*use 1/4 inch seam allowance to end up with a 8 1/2 inch block
Bright colored prints are best for the border fabrics. This series we will use print fabrics only, no solids. Small prints work better for these blocks than large prints.
Cutting instructions for one block:
Cut 2 different black and white prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½”
Cut 6 PURPLE prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½”
Assembly per block:
1.Sew the 2 black and white prints together to create center of the block. (assemble on the 4 ½ inch side, NOT at the end of 2 ½” side.) This creates your center. Press seams.
2.Attach a PURPLE print rectangle to each end of center block. (lay center block on the table with the 4 ½” side closest to you) Attach one PURPLE print rectangle to each end on the left and right. Press.
3.Sew 2 PURPLE rectangles together end-to-end on the 2 1/2“sides making a long rectangle. Repeat with the other 2 PURPLE rectangles. Attach one of these units to the top and one to the bottom of the block. Press.
I hope my instructions are clear, and if they are not, please let me know. I love to look at an assembled block as my example so you can look at the picture on this swap to see what you will end up with.
FUTURE ROUNDS the black and white centers will have these colors/prints around them:
2019 orange or peach print #8 2019
2019 LIGHT green #9 2019
2019 senders choice #10
2019 recipients favorite color #11
2019 bright, wild and or crazy print #12
Have fun and swap-on!
