Allegiance Quilt – Step 2 PRINTABLE PAGE HERE
This week we are making rail fence blocks. All cutting instructions are for the full width of fabric.
Quilt of Valor:
Cut 6 strips 2 ½” wide in each of fabrics 2, 3 and 4. Sew the strips together with fabric 4 in the middle. You will have 6 strip sets.
Sub-cut these into 9 ½ blocks for a total of 24 blocks.
The blocks will be 6 ½ x 9 ½.
Cut 4 strips 2” wide in each of fabrics 2, 3 and 4.
Sew the strips together with fabric 4 in the middle. You will have 4 strip sets.
Sub-cut these into 6 ½ blocks for a total of 24 blocks.
The blocks will be 4 ½ x 6 ½.
Press the seams any way you prefer. It will not matter when we assemble the quilt.
Just to prove to you... I AM Keeping UP!!!
