To make up for the oopsie and as its a Bank Holiday weekend and some might like to get a head start I’m posting Aril late and May early today!
This month’s block choice is from Genevieve and she has chosen a type of chain block that looks like fun to make. Would be a perfect block to keep in mind for using up scraps at some stage too and I think its a lovely choice for a bee block!
To make this block you will need :
No half-square triangles or flying geese!! Only 3 inch squares
Overall blue theme– can use small print
|Colour||Cut one strip (Or shorter strips in multiple of 3”)||Cut long strips into 3” squares|
|Very light blue or white||3” wide by 24” long||8|
|Mid-blue||3” wide by 57” long||19|
|Dark blue/navy||3” wide by 66” long||22|
Put together with ¼ inch seams. Seven 32 squares across, row by row then join rows.
Press seams open.
Block size around 18 inches un-finished. 17.5” finished when pieced into your quilt.
Happy May Bank Holiday Weekend!
