I'm going on vacation this month (May) and several of you won't be able to start right away. That's fine. We'll start slow and make it easy to get caught up. I am hoping to have my block prepped and handy so I can add a few stitches when I have a few moments.
|House, star, and half square triangles|
I thought I'd post a block at the beginning of the month, then do a link up at the end of the month so we can see each others blocks. I contemplated doing this quilt in wool, but decided I was ready for a cotton applique project.
It was brought to my attention there are corrections in the book that need to be made. I wrote them right in my book this morning. Thanks Dorothy!! I see they are also on Lynda's website.
Here they are.
Page 17 – Section C.
The bottom rectangle on the right is not 16 1/2” x 8 1/2” cut 17” x 8 1/2”
then the rectangles on the right and left are the same length before joining to the top square.
Page 19 – Section E
E2 The strips on each side of the 9-patch are cut 7 3/4" x 21 1/2” - not 21”
E2 Cut the filler on the bottom of the Zinnia block 1 3/4” x 24” - not 2 1/4” x 24”
E3 Cut the house background 18” x 24 1/2” or Cut it 16 1/2” x 20 1/2” and stitch a cut size 2” x 20 1/2” filler
to the top to make it look like the photo. The side squares are an addition to your own liking.
The house block with the sawtooth attached should measure 18” x 24”.
