Wow! Hopping around gave us all some wonderful ideas using Dots!
A big "Thank You" to Corrie and Des from Quilt Taffy Blog and Madamn Samm from Sew We Quilt Blog.
Then I started sewing the strips where I cut. See the next couple photos.
Do not stretch or pull as you are sewing. Pins are a good idea if you pin your seams. The angle cuts are bias and may stretch a bit.
Roughly trim off the edges.
Ready to trim the block. I made it quite a bit larger, but probably an inch larger would have been plenty.
You could cut it at an angle, but then you are going to have more bias edges to stretch and pull.
I rotary trimmed my block "straight on" instead of at an angle -- less bias fabric to work with later when assembling the quilt blocks into the quilt top.
Trimmed to 12 1/2 inch block. Well actually if you look closely -- my ruler is a 13" Square! So I cut it at 13 inches.
You could sew border strips around each block.
If you did the strips inbetween with the yellow on the purple you could make a whole quilt with just two colors.
My finished block was simple and so very easy to make!
Thanks for hopping by!
