Starting this journey and building some
gorgeous quilts together is exciting..
Do you have your fabric ready?
You can use scraps from your stash or precuts,
It's up to you. I'm using both.
Here we go!
From your background fabric cut eight 4 1/2in squares.
From your stash or jelly roll cut eight 2 1/2in strips.
Crosscut these strips into two 2 1/2in x 4 1/2in rectangles and
two 2 1/2in x 8 1/2in strips.
Sew the 2 1/2in x 4 1/2in rectangle to the top and bottom
of your 4 1/2in background square. Press well.
Then sew the 2 1/2in x 8 1/2 in strips to the sides
of the background square. Press again.
Repeat with all eight background squares.
These will make the applique blocks.
