This time of the year I start thinking about Christmas presents. Like many of you, I love to make small quilted items as gifts for friends and family.
Last night I spent some time on Electric Quilt 7 playing with a number of options for a small wall-hanging/table runner that could be used to decorate your house or given away.
I thought it would be fun to share the instructions for the blocks with you over the next few weeks (three weeks for blocks and one week for setting instructions). This will give you plenty of time to get the project completed in time for Christmas.
I will provide you the secret link for the block instructions each week. The instructions will remain posted until the end of the year. So please either print them off or save them prior to that time if you are interested in a copy.
Information to get you started. There will be two setting options. One will finish 30" long by 14" tall. The other will 32" tall by 14" long. I am piecing the second one and will share photos of my finished blocks each week. It will make a great wall-hanging for a door.
I used the Perfect Corner Ruler™. However instructions are given if you do not have the ruler. The Perfect Corner Method™ and Ruler™ were both developed by Ruthanna Grihalva, Forever In Stitches, LLC.
Additional instructions on using the Perfect Corner Ruler are provided in my 11/9 blog posting.
Here is block #1.
Please post a comment if you have any questions on the instructions or construction method.
