I’m the Queen Bee for September in the Siblings Together Quilt Bee, we’ve got holiday coming up and then school starts so I’m getting organised! I’ve decided to go big and simple for my quilt. I searched around for my little used Touchdraw skills and drew up this:
I’m asking the bee to make 18.5″ unfinished cross blocks in blue or green. This is my block:
This will be a quilt for a boy so I’m asking for use more masculine/gender neutral prints where possible (i.e. no florals, hearts etc). Background fabrics are to be low volume, I would prefer prints but a white/cream/pale grey solid will be fine if you don’t have suitable low volume prints.
Cut from coloured fabrics:
1: 12.5” x 6.5”
2: 6.5” x 3.5”
Cut from low volume fabrics:
4: 6.5” x 6.5”
4: 6.5” x 3.5”
And piece together in order as shown:
This will make a 18.5″ unfinished block. I’m thinking about adding a border around the 12 finished blocks to increase the size of the quilt top, but will decide on that once the blocks have arrived.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
