Block of the Month Block 2

Time has really gotten away from me...I guess that's what happens after a lovely vacation! I finally got my suitcases completely unpacked and the washing machine is humming so now I can spend some quality time at the computer.

Here is Block 2 of the Block of the Month quilt I have designed. Happy Sewing!

Fabric Requirements:
From white fabric cut:
Eight 4” squares

From green fabric cut:
Eight 4” squares


Draw a diagonal line on the wrong side of the 4” white squares.

Place a 4” white square right sides together with a 4” green square. Sew ¼” seam on each side of the drawn diagonal line. Cut on the drawn line and press the seam toward the red fabric. Trim to 3½”. Repeat with all of the 4” squares. You will have a total of 16 half square triangle squares.

Lay out the squares and sew together in rows as follows.

Row 1
Row 2
Row 3
Row 4

Sew the rows together to complete the block.

No Pictures...

Sorry, I forgot the cord that connects my camera to the computer so no photos until I get home. We have left Florida and have traveled to South Carolina where it is pretty cold. We have met up with my husband's brother and sister and their families for the rest of the vacation. It is looking like the weather will improve each day.

I just finished the best book I have read in a long time. It is called The 13th Tale by Diane Setterfield. I brought two other books with me but I know they will never live up to the one I just finished! I am also knitting a baby sweater for a friend's new grandson. That's all from vacation central! Happy Easter!

We have followed our son down to Florida to watch him play's hot here! I'm not going to complain, since there was snow in the forecast for home. I packed a whole suitcase with yarn and needlework...I'll have some photos for you tomorrow. Stay tuned...
