Have you heard that Saturday, March 15th is National Quilting Day? How will you celebrate?
If you haven't come up with a plan -- I have one that you might be interested in trying.
Earlier in the week, I drafted "Daffodil Days" in Electric Quilt. I plan to make the quilt on National Quilting Day and want to invite you to join me.
Instructions (hot off the computer)are included in this post.
The blocks on this quilt measure 3" x 3" finished and the overall quilt will measure 21" x 21".
I picked up some fabrics at the quilt shop this afternoon to get me started. Quilt can be done with fat quarters.
Daffodil Block Construction - Make 12 Blocks
Leaf Block - Make 12
For the Leaf Block, I used a tool from Deb Tucker's Studio 180 Design. I love using these rulers as they provide for pieces that are slightly over-cut and then cut down once they are pieced. This gets rid of many challenges with block construction. For this block I am using the Corner Beam™ tool.
I've taken photos of the cutting and construction of this block as I think it really helps see how the ruler is used.
Use Corner Beam™ to cut and discard the left corner of Green F 4”□.
Reposition Green F so the line just cut matches the slanted dotted line on the ruler. The cut and discard the right corner.
Layer pieces right sides together and raw edges even. Shift Background E down a little over ¼ inch so the point of the green piece is visible. Sew one side, press and then sew the other side.
My plans are to work on this throughout National Quilting Day. I will be posting some pictures of my progress on Facebook.
