Tinted Chains

Hi!  If you enjoy this blog, please become
a follower, I need to know if anyone is out
there using these tutorials!  And pop on over
to the American Homestead blog and see what
is going on in my life.  All the best!  ~ Ellen

We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.

This is how I made my block, it may differ a
bit from the original.

It is Easter Sunday here in the USA. Finally, it
looks like Spring has arrived though I have heard
rumors of snow flurries in a few days. Noooooo!
I am so happy to see Spring-like weather that it
inspired my fabric choices this week. Something
bright and happy and floral.

Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: Large Floral
4 - 3 5/16'' squares

Fabric B: Pink Medium Floral
1 - 3 5/16'' square

Fabric C: Pink & White Print
1 - 5 3/16'' square - cut twice
on the diagonal.

Fabric D: Turquoise Floral
