Here we go.
Let's get this show on the road!
Grab 49 different 2.5 inch scrap squares. Don't think too much about them, just grab blindly and hope for the best. If you start thinking you'll never get 49 squares you are happy with so it's best to just jump in feet first and get sewing.
1. Sew the squares into 7 rows of 7
2. Press your seams so they butt together - first row one way, next row the opposite etc etc
3. Sew your rows together to make 1 block. Press. Step back, admire your handiwork.
Then you have to do it all over again. Repeat this block for a total of 18 A blocks for the twin sized quilt or 12 A blocks for the big lap quilt.
I'm off to Houston next week for Quilt Market so I'll do the instructions for block B when I get back. That gives you a couple of weeks to make a start.
These blocks are pretty fast to whip up. You could chain stitch a whole heap of pairs and make up a few blocks at a time. That's what I'll be doing this evening!
For the next quilt along post I'l be holding a giveaway or 2 of something exciting that I pick up in Houston. I don't know what yet - some fab market goodies, that's for sure. So whilst you're stitching up your blocks think of a really good name to replace my (not so) working title of Scrap Vomit. Don't tell me yet - save it for the next quit along post.
Any questions or problems, give me a shout - either leave a comment here or email me katyejones at hotmail dot com.
If you need reminding what fabrics and stuff you need, the original blog post is right here.
I can't wait to see your blocks!!!!
