Contrary Wife



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.  The directions
may differ from the original.
 
 
Fabric Requirements:
Fabric A: Red
3 - 3  3/16'' squares
 
Fabric B: Green
2 - 4'' squares
 
Fabric C: White
2 - 4'' squares - Mark a
diagonal line on back.
 
Fabric D: Blue
2 - 3  3/16'' squares
 
 
Make Half Square Triangles:
Pair Fabric B and Fabric C 3  3/16''
squares, with right sides together.
Sew 1/4'' away from each side of the
drawn line.  Press seam to the Fabric B.
Square to 3  3/16''.
 
 
Layout units as shown and sew together
in 3 rows.  Press seams in rows 1 & 3 to
the outside and seams in row 2 to the inside.
 
 
Sew rows together and press final seams
open to reduce bulk.  Square to 8 1/2''.

Here are a few ways to use this block in
a quilt, it's all about how you position the
same block!
