Craftsy Block of the Month 2012 »
InstructionsAmy stresses the scant 1/4 inch seam and she means it! These came out exactly 12.5 inches square. Lower block looks smaller but that is optical illusion based on angle of photo.
Type of item: Functional
Style: Mod, Whimsical, Traditional
Continued using mix of cotton fabrics featuring dark background fabric
What was your inspiration?
The wonderful group of fat quarters I found at the Mid Atlantic Quilt Show in Hampton.
What are you most proud of?
Most proud of keeping my birds with their heads "up" on these blocks.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Be sure to use the scant 1/4 inch seam allowance or your blocks will be too small. Don't trust your foot, measure to see where 1/4 inch is and then go slightly (thread or two) inside that.
