My friends, Sheila and Kathy (no blogs) are also hitting the ole' wagon trail on Barbara Brackman's sew along. We are making them in the 9" size.
Here are Sheila's Blocks for week 1 and 2
Here are Kathy's - I love the little "variance" on the first block ;)
Sheila told me about a ipad, iphone app that you can use to resize the blocks. It's called BlockFab. It has a huge library of blocks. Here is how the anvil block looked in the app.
I'm challenging myself to do it myself so here is my chart.
I also employed this wonderful technique. It was perfect because 8 was exactly how many I needed for this block - winner! This is a sheet that Jill sent me years ago.
Here is the formula:
Take the finished size, add 1" then multiply by 2. Mark lines on the diagonal, sew on both sides and cut at shown. Viola' 8 finished HST.
Here are my blocks.
I had to change out the corners because the darker looks so much better.
It's not too late join in!
Alice Payne Quilting Update: 4 blocks finished! woo hoo
