The Hands of Strangers


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 Month, Dixie Diary.

Today I realized I somehow missed September,
I chalk that up to too much work and some
travel fun thrown in.  I'll post October's
sometime later in the month.

Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: Red
1 - 7 1/4'' square

Fabric B: White, Red & Green Print
1 - 7 1/4'' square
Fabric C: Blue
4 - 3 1/2'' x 6 1/2'' rectangles

Fabric D: Green & White Print
4 - 3 1/2'' squares

Make Half Square Triangles:
Mark a diagonal line on the back of the
Fabric B 7 1/4'' square.
Pair the 7 1/4'' squares with right sides
together.  Sew 1/4'' away from each side of
the drawn line. 

Press seams to the dark fabric.  Square to 6 1/2''.

Note: you will need only 1 of the half square
triangles, save the other for another project.

Sew a Fabric C rectangle to each side
of the Half Square Triangle.
Press seams to the Fabric C.

Sew Fabric D squares to each side of
the remaining Fabric C rectangles.
Press seams to the Fabric C.

Layout units as shown and sew together.

Square to 12 1/2''.

I added the sashing and applique as
described in month 1.
