Hello fellow Bees!
My name is Louise and I live in Limerick with my husband and two children. I am originally from Dublin but followed my man to Limerick in 2003 and have stayed ever since.
I met Ruth at my first Mid-West IPS meeting and she introduced me to the MQI. That was the beginning of 2014, where I had only sewn curtains and cushions previously but now I am happily branching out to patchwork and quilting.
I have chosen “the wheel of time” block for September, which I came across on Pinterest in multiple colours (thanks Ruth for putting a name on it for me!!).
The blocks are made up using half square triangles and I used Ruth’s cheat sheet to make 4 HST quickly.
8 no. 5 ¾” Medium/Steel Grey squares
4 different 5 ¾” Aqua squares
4 different 5 ¾” oranges
Place one grey square and one aqua square right sides facing and sew ¼” all the way around the outside edge
· Cut the square on the diagonal to make 4 HST
· Press the seams open
· Repeat for the remaining 3 aqua and grey squares
UPDATE: Remember to trim the blocks to 3 1/2" square before sewing together for a 12 1/2" finished block
· Place the HSTs in the block layout and sew together
· Repeat the same process for the grey and orange block
· Both blocks should be 12 ½” square.
