Whew!–What a busy week and weekend I just had. Fortunately I was still able to keep on track with my next row of Elonie’s quilt. I’ve been excited about this block since designing the quilt–and it turned out just as cute as I had hoped.
For this row you will need: 1/2 yard of Tile Blue Pure Elements by Art Gallery Fabrics & 7/8 yd. Moda Bella PFD White.
From the Blue Fabric cut: (2) 8 1/2″ x wof strips; cut into (8) 8 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ rectangles
From the White Fabric: cut (4) 2 1/2″ x wof strips; cut (16) 2 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ rectangles, cut (3) 2 1/2″ x wof strips; cut into (8) 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ rectangles, cut (2) 4 1/2″ x wof strips; cut into (16) 4 1/2″ squares, cut (1) 2 1/4″ x wof strip; cut into (16) 2 1/4″ squares
Place a 4 1/2″ white square right sides together in the corner of the blue rectangle. Sew a diagonal line.
Trim a 1/4″ seam allowance and press. Sew a 4 1/2″ white square on the other top corner(on the 8 1/2″ side). Sew a diagonal, trim a 1/4″ seam and press.
In the same manner, complete the bottom two corners using the 2 1/4″ squares.
Sew a 2 1/2″ x 10 1/2″ white rectangle to the sides of the Raindrop block. Press away from the center. Sew a 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ rectangle to the bottom of the block. Press away from the center. Make a total of (8) 12 1/2″ Raindrop Blocks.
Sew the Raindrops together to complete Row #10.
Sew the row onto the Rainbow Rows quilt top.
Next week we are onto the purples!
On a side note: For those of you following along on the SuperSized Block Along, I updated the the “Cutting Instructions for the Whole Sampler”. If you saved or printed out the cutting instructions before Saturday morning double check to make sure that you have the current version on my blog. I changed up the piecing on one of the blocks to make it a little bit easier. If you have already cut the pieces for the entire sampler you will have just a few more pieces to cut. It doesn’t change the yardage requirements at all.
