The quilt top.
Materials for 2 blocks
- 10 x 5 inch charm squares
- 8 x 5 inch squares cream coloured
Make a 2 x 9 patch block using 5 inch charm squares and a contrasting fabric for each.
Measure the centre square and then divide by 2. Use the result to cut the sides of each block as per picture below. Cut the strip from the centre to the outside. The resulting strip will be a bit wider than the stripe stitched to the centre square.
Now do the same with another block and swap the stripes you cut around as in the picture below.
Start by stitching the shorter sides together and then the longer sides. Trim the longer sides after stitching like in the picture and iron flat.
