Block Party

Hi, Everyone!  If you missed the June Meeting, but would still like to participate in this month's Block Party,  I chose a simple potholder as a sneaky way to create a few more items for the September Quilt & Garden Tour Boutique!  Feel free to make more than one, including one for yourself of any theme. (If you get really ambitious, you can make some fall holiday themed potholders, too: Halloween, Thanksgiving, etc.) When you bring me your completed squares for the top along with the backing, I'll provide the insulbrite batting for them at the July Meeting; just let me know if you're bringing more than one so I cut enough squares.  Below is the color version of the basic square.

 

The web site with full instructions and color pictures for the potholder tutorial is here.

Here are the additional CVQ instructions: 

 

Select floral-themed fabric to go with our September Quilt Garden Tour.  You can use it for the center square, or keep the center plain and use the floral for the border, or any other creative idea you might have! 

At least 3 different but coordinated fabrics; a 4th fabric for the back, if you wish.

 

1 - 6-1/2" square for the center

4 - 2-1/2" strips for the sides

4 - 2-1/2" squares for the corners

1 -12-1/2" square for the back

 

 

 

Remaining instructions for finishing will be provided at the July meeting, or you can follow the instructions on the website.

Have fun!
