Instructions for making a block or blocks for our next raffle quilt for 2014-15.
All fabrics to be provided by participants. Use clear, bright blues and whites or white on whites. NO OTHER COLORS ACCEPTED.
Squares can be appliqued or pieced. Please leave edges UNFINISHED , with a generous outside seam allowance.
Make blocks divisible by 3 ( finished size). For example : 3″ x 3″, 6″ x 6″, 6″ x 9″, 9″ x 12″, 12″ x 15″. NOTE, that is the desired finished sizes, so the blocks you will hand in unfinished will measure 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″, etc.
Or, members can make filler strips for use as lattice strips. Ideas for filler strips could be fabrics cut 1 1/2″ x width of fabric, or 2 1/2″ x width of fabric or members could make “flying geese” filler strips 3 1/2″ x 42-44″ long, or piano keys 3 1/2″ x 42-44″ long, etc.
Betty Hastings and Mary Jo Ray will be at the MVQ Sept. 19th meeting and will have a table set up with demo squares, color chip ideas and take-home color photos to get you started. We appreciate, in advance, your participation and energy. With your help, this will be another beautiful MVQ raffle quilt.
Thanks, Betty and Mary Jo
