Happy New Year

Here’s to a prosperous, healthy and creative 2014 for all!

This weeks quilt idea, well I have three for you, all variation on a theme; all measure approximately 51.5″ square and are set on-point.

Common Block

I ‘found’ the above block in a book called ‘Around the block again’ but I am sure it has been around a lot longer than than the book, as nothing is ‘brand new’ these days – someone in the past has done it before, especially this one as it is so simple.  I have used this block as a common block in the three designs I have for you this week.

Here is the rotary cutting info for this block:- Triangles and Squares common to all block rotary cutting info

Triangles and Squares 1

 

Trainagles and squares 1

The quilt layout:-

I have added a larger block that mirrors just one segment of the common block

The corner triangles rotary cutting info is here:- Triangles and Squares 1 corner triangles rotary cutting info and the setting triangle rotary cutting info is here:- Triangles and Squares 1 setting triangles rotary cutting info

The fabric yardage info for quilt 1 is here:- Triangles and Squares 1 fabric yardage info.  You will also need an additional 18″ across the width of the fabric for binding, cut this into 2.5″ strips, joining end to end to create a continuous length.  Press in half along the length and attach to the quilt in the method of your choice.
