Hour #1

The day to start is finally here!  🙂   The name I’m going to use for this quilt is Freeze Frame.  If you haven’t done a Quilt for an Hour with me before, please read this blog post and this blog post.  I will try to answer questions as they arise but I’m gone more than I’m home for the duration of this project.

Here we go . . have fun!

Hour #1:

Light Background Fabric:
12 – 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ strips
12 – 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ strips

Scrap Fabric:
Cut 6 different colored 4-1/2″ squares.
Make 6 different sets of:  (for each set, these four pieces should be the same color — you’ll have 6 different sets — 6 different colors):
2 – 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ strips
2- 2-1/2″ x 12-1/2″ strips

Step 1:  Sew a 2-1/2″ x 4-1/2″ light background strip to two opposite sides of a colored 4-1/2″ square.  Press seam allowances towards light background fabric.


Step 2:  Sew a 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ strip to the remaining sides of the colored square.  Press seam allowances towards the light background fabric.


Step 3:  Sew a 2-1/2″ x 8-1/2″ colored strip to two opposite sides of the Step 2 unit.  Press seam allowances towards colored fabric.


Step 4:  Sew a 2-1/2″ x 12-1/2″ colored strip to the two remaining sides.  Press seam allowances towards colored fabric.


Make 6 blocks.

    Since I leave to be with my daughter tomorrow for her Wed. surgery, I am going to do “catch up” with this on the weekend. For some reason, I thought we were starting next week…but that’s okay. I will just be a bit behind…but…I’ll get there…eventually. LOL

    Esperaba ansiosa las instrucciones para comenzar. No se como es su rutina, se publican para el lunes siguiente? o en la medida que lo hacemos?
    Es posible poner el quilt con enlace a su blog?
    Perdone tantas preguntas, pero ultimamente con esto del copirigh estoy algo confundida.
