|4 blocks together|
the chicopee charms are 6 inch squares, which means they make 5 1/2" hst. the pinked edges are a bit shy of 6", so i centered them on the white. draw a line corner to corner, then stitch along each side.
cut apart, and square them up to 5 1/2". you won't have much to cut off, if any.
when you stitch them four of them together like this, you get a 10.5" block. (note, the white is in top left, same print side by side)
|This is the block you're making!|
i'm asking each member to make one block, each using 2 different chicopee charms paired with white. i'll decide the actual layout once i get them all back. i also like the idea of this:
the fun part for me is playing with the blocks! i also thought about doing grey stitch and flip triangles in the center diamond, like this:
and you get a 2nd pattern of pinwheels in the other white areas. so many choices! tune in next month...
