Hello all, Mary Ellen here,
Recently returned from my quest for toilet paper. Actually I have enough to last for a while but the panic that is keeping the shelves empty is getting to me. How long will it take til folks calm down and go back to their usual shopping patterns?
Been getting more crafting done of late. And I’ve read a couple of books as well. Not as much sewing as I usually do actually.
Here is the next installment for our corona quilt project.
a) Cut 4 strips that we will set aside for sashing. Each should be 2-1/2″ wide by 20-1/2″ long. They can all be cut from the same fabric, or cut 2 each of two of your fabrics. Use your medium or darks.
b) Make 2 nine patches that will finish at 6 inches (6-1/2 raw). Use one of your dark fabrics and one of your lights. Make both of them “light” nine patches, in other words the outer 4 corners and the center square light fabric.
c) Make 4 half square triangles that will finish at 6″ square (6-1/2 raw). Use your background fabric (cream or white) for the light half and one or both of your medium fabrics for the other half.
Keep calm and carry on!
