As I showed a week or so ago, here is the 12" Anvil block. I am back to the QOV blocks. I am trying to do a few of these if I have an hour to waste, or if I finish a quilt before it is time for my kids to get home. It is a better use of my time than staring at facebook!
I picked up a few of the patriotic prints and solids after having a discussion with the Colorado QOV coordinator. She relayed to me that their preference really is the red, white and blue blocks. It does make me wonder why we have a modern gray colorway at all, but that was not my decision. I will finish the blocks in that color that I have cut, but not cut any more. Yesterday, I picked up 3 yds of dark blue and 1 yard of three others. My fabric store has a horrible selection of this type fabric, but this will make a bunch. How many, I wonder??...we'll see.
You'll need the following of the "feature" fabric...one 8-1/2" square
From the background...one 8-1/2" square, one 6-1/2" square and four 3-1/2" squares
The end result is a nice large pile of blocks to make. I think this is around 40 or so. It's going to snow Wednesday so I have a lofty goal to get through half of this! (he he). If you are curious, the 3yd background I had cut into 26 blocks
