The top for my H2H quilt is finished although I may add a border to make it a little bigger.
The blocks are super fast to put together! It’s basically a log cabin using two different size strips. All seam allowances are 1/4 inch and I pressed toward the strips.
A 5 inch square for the center, a 3 inch wide strip and a 2 inch wide strip.
Place the 3 inch strip rights sides together with the 5 inch square and sew together along one edge. I use the full length of the strip…
..and cut it off after I’ve sewn the seam. Now press flat to set the seam and then press the seam allowance toward the strip.
Trim the edges even with the center square.
First step complete!
Add another 3 inch strip as shown here.
Press and trim as you did for the first step.
Continuing in the same manner, add a 2 inch strip, press and trim.
Add the last 2 inch strip, press, trim and you’re finished!
The sashing is a 2.5 inch width of print with a 1.25 width of solid on either side. I chose to offset the rows so they didn’t line up on top of one another.
I’m linking to Sarah’s Whoop, Whoop Fridays post…lots of great ideas over there! Thanks, Sarah:)
Wish us luck with the paint sprayer today…we’re painting exterior doors! Let the fun begin!
