The pattern calls for 6 spools... but didn't give a finished ready to sew size for anything but the spool part... it is a Quilt in a Day pattern and wants to make it easy ... but when you change the pattern it just makes it more challenging... so let me share what I did :)
Here is just 1 block ~ I made 3 of this color way...
First I made the spools by cutting creatively a 1 7/8" strip from 3 coordinating (to me! ha) fat quarters or scraps... you will need each scrap to be 4" long times the number of strips you want in that specific fabric :) For me I used fat quarters then fussy cut that 1 strip of 1 7/8" to 3 ~ 4" strips I liked :). That gave me a ready to piece raw edged piece that was the specified pattern size of 4 x 4 1/2" tall.
Next I marked all the C2 blocks with a diagonal pencil line...
Next up I chain pieced the rest of the block by sewing the corners diagonally on the line drawn heading like I have them laid out here... RIGHT sides together ... my white blocks look the same on both sides so I didn't have to watch that :)
Once you have chain pieced this all together and are left with only the middle left block remaining you can pull that one from your chain to add it! Easy :)
And before I knew it I was done! Tadaaah!
What are you up to this Saturday ?
Have a blessed weekend!
