I showed you guys a chopped four-patch in my last post. This month, in the Stash Bee, Bonnie asked for a chopped and resewn block called the intersection block. You can find a tutorial for it here.
Add two borders to your center square then cut it into fourths. Flip the sections around and you get this! The block was so fun and easy that I made two. My second project for the Stash Bee is a prize. Everyone in the entire Bee (not just my small group) who sent their blocks in on time got a chance to win. I volunteered to make the winner, Amanda, a 12″ crumbs pillow sham. Her favorite color is blue and she chose a star.
I made the template and traced it onto the fabric, which is larger than needed and cut down to size after appliqueing.
I have quite a large crumb-block stack to choose from! I audition blocks with the star template. This one looks good.
I pinned the crumb-block under the blue then zig-zagged twice around the star. The fabric inside is cut away revealing the crumbs. This method is called reverse applique.
Ta-Da! Isn’t it wonderful? You can buy these in my etsy shop and, as always, I love doing custom orders. Letters, symbols, numbers and even the shapes of states are available.
The next post will feature some cute baby quilts and a guest blogger!
