October's block is super cool. It's a modified grandmother's fan. So much fun to make. Can't wait to see all the blocks put together...this is going to be one fantastic looking quilt!
|I made a cloud, a tulip and a wonky heart for San-Dee's quilt.|
|For the October block, you need to start by making a large piece of fabric, at least 12 x 12.|
|Cut it down to 11 x 11 and then cut a piece of contrasting fabric the same size.|
|Place one piece of fabric on top of the other, both pieces must be right side up. Cut in half, on the diagonal.|
|Cut off the bottom point of the triangle, about 3 inches up.|
|Make four cuts and switch two of the pieces as shown.|
|Sew the top pieces together.|
|Press seams and add a 3.5 inch black half square triangle to the bottom. Voila, a modified grandmother's fan!|
