Yay! Let's start our quilts! Each block should finish a 12 1/2" square.
Please email me if you have any questions at all.
If you haven't cut with a rotary cutter before, you can watch this video I found on you tube to help you get started.
From Back Ground Fabric (light blue): Cut one 7.25" square and cut into quarters diagonally
From Accent Fabric (periwinkle): Cut one 7.25" square and cut into quarters diagonally
From Main Fabric (fuchsia): Cut two 6 7/8 " Squares and cut in half diagonally
Always Use 1/4" seam on quilts, You can buy a foot for your machine that is specifically 1/4" for quilting and makes it a lot easier. Also,don't use steam on your iron, especially because since these fabric are being cut diagonally, they are on the bias edge and will stretch if you pull too much.
Lay out your blocks so they look like the picture below but line them up perfectly ;) The top two units are you first row, sew them together and press seam toward the left block. The bottom two units are your second row, sew them together and press towards the right block. Now sew the rows together and match up the center seams that you pressed in opposite directions(you can also just press the seams open, pressing them in opposite directions is a little trick I've picked up that saves a lot of time).
Your finished block should measure 12 1/2"
