New'Bee February Block

New’Bee February Block

Hopefully February’s block will be simple for you……because you get to design it!  (With three requests).

1)    Make a heart block from made-fabric

2)   Somewhere within the heart, have a predominate "spot" of a solid bright red

3)   Have the heart bordered with “white-ish” made-fabric.

Here’s an example:

Your creativity is what counts.  The block may be

·         Any size

·         The heart may be any shape

·         Use any colors (multi-colored made-fabric or monotone made-fabric) for the heart – as long as there is a predominate "spot" within the heart that is bright red

·         Heart is bordered with “white-ish” made fabric
If you would like to make one like mine here is how I put it together:

Make two (2) 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" Flying Geese

Sew together to make a strip

Make one (1) 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" Made-fabric Rectangle

Make two (2) 4 1/2" Half Square Triangles "Blocks"

Sew together to make a strip

Place strips for sewing.....and then sew strips together

Then if you would like to put a "white-ish" border, don't worry about the size as I will cut it to size or add to it.

But remember, you do not have to make this particular heart.  The main thing is to have a predominate "spot" of a solid bright red in it. 

I look forward to seeing what you create!
