Elizabeth of Oh Fransson! had the month of February for the BEE-autiful VQB and she posted this fabulous tutorial for us to follow. As you can see she supplied us with some Valentine-y solids and prints... do check out her blog to see how cute the little baggies of fabric were! It was a really fun package to get in the mail, to be sure! Elizabeth requested rectangle blocks between 8" and 15" in size.
After sewing sets of 4 strips together, chopping those into 3 pieces, and sewing chunks of 3 together... here's how my cutting table looked:
Out of those fifteen mini-chunks I puzzle-pieced together 3 larger blocks. Yes, some straightening of edges had to be done to make them all fit... and here's the largest one that measures about 12.5" x 13.5"
The next two were each about 9" x 13.5".
This piecing method was completely new to me and I thoroughly enjoyed the process. It was quite time consuming as I probably spent about 6 hours from start to finish making them... but dang did it make for some cool blocks! Elizabeth, I hope these blocks suit you~
