Today we begin a quick quilt-along. I’m using the May Color Palette colors. Feel free to us any fabrics you desire.
The quilt as shown will finish at 70″ x 79″. As far as yardage, use stash fabric or scraps and use as many different fabrics as you’d like. For the white or ecru (or whatever color you choose) background, you will need about 2-7/8 yards.
The quilt below shows pieced squares for the sashing squares and a few pieced squares in the border. The quilt show above has no sashing squares. I will give instructions for both or you may use plain squares for the sashing and all plain squares in the border.
The blocks are 7-1/2″ finished or 8″ unfinished. The block could be strip pieced but for variety, I will piece all of mine with individual pieces. We only need 30 blocks.
The center (green) and the left and right side of the center (yellow) are cut 2″ x 2″.
Press the seam allowances any way you’d like! It isn’t going to matter one bit with the piecing.
For the top and bottom strips of that section, the pieces (yellow) are cut 2″ x 5″.
Again, press the seam allowances any direction you’d like.
Can you get 30 of these center sections made before Monday? My guess is yes, you can!
