Block of the Month - Due at November Meeting

Bring as many of these blocks as you like to the November meeting. You will get one entry to the drawing for each block turned in. The winner of the drawing takes home all of the blocks!

Since we all seem to love fun patterns on the diagonal, our block of the month is the Modified Quarter Log Cabin block by Wooden Spoon Quilts. Instructions are here, but please note we have scaled up the size to finish at 8.5" (9" unfinished). So use the measurements below.

Main color: Bright pattern colors
Background: low volume whites/ beiges

Note: If you do not wish to sub-cut the strips, simply sub-cut cut the starting and ending pieces and cut pieces as you sew. 
Colored: 2 ¼, 6 ¾, 7 ½
Background: 2 ¼ squares

Step 1: Cut one strip of 2 ¼ in x WOF of the colored fabric. Sub-cut this strip into 2 ¼, 2 ¾, 4 ½, 5, 5 ½, 6 ¾, 7 ½ pieces.
Step 2: Cut two 2 ¼ inch squares and a 1 in x WOF strip from the background fabric. Sub-cut the strip into 2 ¼, 2 ¾, 4 ½, 5, 6 ¾, 7 ¼ inch pieces.
Step 3: Start with the 2 ¼” square of colored fabric. Sew the smallest background strip to the left of this fabric square, then sew the second smallest background strip to the top of this pieced unit.
Step 3: Add the main fabric strips, on the left of the pieced unit, then the top of the pieced unit.
Step 4: Continue alternating adding background and main fabric strips.
Step 5: Before adding the last round of strips, sew the background squares to the main fabric strips.
