I started with some orphan blocks from my daughter's Squary Quilt.
|Jewel's Squary Quilt|
Not all green scraps. A few have purple flowers and a few are blue and some pink too.
I had to figure out how I wanted to cut up the Orphan Blocks. The 2" squares stitched into a 4 patch measures 3 1/2" square. The 2 1/2" squares stitched into a 4 patch measures 4 1/2" square.
I decided to cut it at 3 1/2" and add a 1 1/2 inch strip to the top side.
Then I decided to add a strip the next side, which then measures 4 1/2" square.
But I needed it to measure 1" larger to fit in with the other blocks. See the next couple of photos.
This will be my quilt block - a rectangular block.
It measures 9 1/4" by 7 1/4".
Now I need to get busy and stitch all of the squares into 4 patch blocks.
If you have Orphan Blocks or UFO and you want to join in the fun check out the Project Quilting Challenge.
I love being inspired by the challenges!
