I thought it might be nice to take a classic look and give it a 15-minutes of play twist...what do you say? Are you game?
I love the look of red and white quilts, so here's what I came up with for my block....
Here's how I made my blocks, using Victoria's phone book paper method:
|I began with a 6 1/4 inch square of phone book paper.
|Placed my first piece of fabric...
|Added my second selection and sewed them together. I continued adding fabric and when the block was covered I trimmed off the excess.
|One block done.
|Now comes the fun part, adding the slash..
|Ready to add the white fabric. Note, I remove the paper backing at this point, before I add the white slash.
|Sew the white fabric to one side.
|I didn't want my slash to be that wide...
|...so I placed the other red piece at an angle on the block and sewed it together.
