MYSTERY BLOCK OF THE MONTH
ROW BY ROW QUILT
Over the next 6 months I will give you 1 or 2 block patterns each month.
You need to make 7 blocks and join them together to make a row.
There will be a total of 9 rows altogether.
Fabric Requirements for the Blocks
Light Background Fabric 1.50 m
Dark Fabric 1m
Medium fabric A 1m
Medium fabric B 50cm
This is a general guide line as you may want to use several different lights, darks and mediums or give the quilt a scrappy look.
I do recommend a high contrast between your light and dark fabrics.
ROUND ROBIN option
Get together with some friends and make the quilt as a Round Robin.
Make the first row then place it and your fabric in a cloth bag.
Put together a schedule for the group of when to swap bags with whom.
For happy group dynamics, remember to be on time and accurate.
The first block is a Double Four Patch on Point
For this row you need 4 block A’s and 3 block B’s
Cut from the background fabric 14 patches 3 7/8” x 3 7/8” then cut corner to corner for 28 triangle patches
Again from the background fabric cut 28 x 1 9/16” squares
Cut from the dark fabric 16 x 1 9/16” squares and 6 x 2 5/8”
And from one of the medium fabrics cut 12 x 1 9/16” squares and
8 x 2 5/8” squares
First sew together the small 4 patch units first, next sew together the bigger 4 patch units and finally sew triangles on opposite sides of the unit then on the other two sides.
Trim each block to 6 ½” square then sew them together
Alternating between block A and block B
Good Luck and I will have another block for you next month.
