Fair Play

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
from the original.
Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: Blue
2 - 4 1/2'' squares
Fabric B: Red
2 - 4 1/2'' squares
Fabric C & D:
scraps large enough for circle units
Wonder Under

Update:  Das Quiltmonster from Germany just
asked what is Wonder Under.  It is a paper backed
fusible web product.  Thanks Regina!
On the paper side of the Wonder Under
draw a 6'' square and then draw lines to
divide it in quarters.
Using a compass, draw a 6'' square,
then mark 1'' in from drawn circle
and draw another circle.
Layout 4 1/2'' squares as shown and sew
together in 2 rows.
Sew rows together and press final seam
open to reduce bulk.
Cut circle shapes as shown, leaving
some excess paper along curved parts.
Following manufacturer's directions,
adhere to the wrong side of Fabric C & D
scraps.  Cut out as shown above.
Adhere to 4-patch unit.
Finish edges as desired.  I used a
hand embroidered blanket stitch.
Square to 8 1/2''.
