On 01 February I put a call out for Heart Blocks which are to be made into quilt for Project Linus. To date I have received 55 blocks. Thank you to everyone who made and sent some in - they are really appreciated and will be shortly made into tops.
In the hope that some people would like to help, but can not commit to a whole quilt, I am going to request a certain block each month - for March the theme is a Disappearing 9 Patch block please.
I had never made one before yesterday, but they are quick and easy to whip up and you can get different patterns when you re-assemble the 4 patch. I thought I may have done a tutorial but there are some great ones out there already so I will leave links at the bottom.
9 x 4.5" squares - the middle square of the 9 patch needs to be red, yellow, blue or green the other blocks can be whatever colour you like
I have asked for a certain colour middle square so that hopefully I will be able co-ordinate the resulting blocks that are made from widely differing fabrics!
Finished square will be 12"
Before I cut the 9 patch the middle square was blue on the top photo and green on the bottom photo.
Tutorials: (remember for these blocks please use 4.5" squares)
