I want to share what I'm asking everyone to make for me since I'm so excited about this quilt!
I asked everyone to please make one large Cracker Scrap block with white background and scrappy red and blue for the colors. My husband and I got married on the 4th of July and I'd love to have a 4th of July/Americana quilt!
I directed them to the great tutorial from Cut To Pieces with my adjustments below.
The large block in the tutorial is made of two parts with white focus and two with color focus. I changed it up and asked for them all to be color focused. If you want to make a fully color focused block for yourself these are the pieces you'll need to cut:
- 4 - 6" Squares White (cut diagonally into 2 triangles)
- 4 - 2.75" x 7.25" White
- 2 - 6" Squares Red (cut diagonally into 2 triangles)
- 2 - 6" Squares Blue (cut diagonally into 2 triangles)
- 4 - 2.75" x 7.25" Red
- 4 - 2.75" x 7.25" Blue
Make two red units and two blue units. Then piece your four units into one block with the colors opposite each other and all colored points in the middle like mine below. The finished size will be 19.5" Square!
Are you in any bees? What block did you ask for when it was your turn as Queen Bee?
