Shine On Sampler - Month 11

Shine on Sampler-Month 11

Written by Brenda

It’s our last month of making blocks for our sampler!  We are going to take a deep dive into the Summer Block.  The use of multiple colors on this block make my heart happy.  And, as usual, I will make use of my AccuQuilt cutter on this one.  

The hourglass block that we need for the points on this block uses the #4 die so if you layer your fabrics, you can get all of these cut with one pass through your accuquilt cutter.  Two layers of green, one white and one blue and you are done!

Match up and sew your pairs together.  The fact that the dog ears, or points of your triangles, are trimmed off makes it easier to match them up and helps with your accuracy.  After sewing two triangles into pairs and then sew the pairs together.  Yes, I am still pressing my seams open!  The checkerboard center goes together rapidly and just like that, this block is done.  The others will go quickly as well and then we we will be off to the finish!

And now that n95s and KN95s are recommended and available, my mask factory is closed leaving me with a TON of elastic.
