Red, White & Blue
A while back (several years) I took
"The Process Pledge"
what that means is to show the step by step
process of the quilts I share.
Now it has been awhile since I have done that
so I have decided this is a good one to share.
So here goes.
In my last post I shared my beginning design
and some of the elements for the quilt.
Now to how it is done.
The design is call
I am making a twin size quilt.
Cut 8 strips that are 4 1/2 inches by WOF
(width of fabric) of the 3 main colors.
Cut each strip at 4 1/2 inches to create squares.
Next, cut 6 strips @ 4 7/8 inches by WOF in red and blue
12 in white.
Sub cut these to 9 3/4 inches
Place a red or a blue right sides together with a white
On the white (or light fabric if your using something else)
draw lines like so, for my quilt I did this 17 times with the red/white combo
and 16 times for the blue/white combo.
Using your 1/4 inch foot on your machine, sew a 1/4 inch
on either side of the lines that go in the V shape. The line up
the middle is not sewn.
Now that the V is sewn on both sides of the drawn line
you will cut the blocks apart on all drawn lines.
Since you made a line of sewing on both sides of the drawn
line making the V shape the drawn line goes inbetween the sewn lines
and when cut on the drawn line you have
created a half square triangle like this. Do this with
both your red and white combo & your blue and white combo.
Press seams to the dark fabric.
Stay tuned for more details.
Until next time.....God's blessings
