Andree, your quilt is just wonderful. I am STILL working on mine, but am applique-ing the borders, so not so long now. I love how you made your quilt your own! I've missed seeing your posts - and am glad to see you're back!

Well it has been a while... Finally finished this one, and sent it to the Vermont Quilt Festival, where it earned a Purple ribbon, plus the Best adaptation ribbon.

Again, thank you Janet Stone for this beautiful pattern!

This one is titled : A-B-Sea for Ewe & Me

Step 1: Make 8 HST units using the 2” squares from each (#18, #13) color and #16. Trim the HST to 1” x 1”.
Step 2: Arrange the HST units with the 1” squares to make the blocks. Join the units in rows, and then, join the rows. Blocks should measure 3” x 3” from raw edge to raw edge.

Step 3: As per instructions, using a 3” x 3” background .
Step 4: as per instructions. The units should measure 3/ x 5-1/2”.
Step 5: For the diagonal: On the full size, we see that on one side, the Z is aligned wih the corner of a block, while on the other end, it goes “inside” the block. I chose to center it so that on each block, the Z would go “inside”. To do that, I found the center of the background by folding it, and then, on the release paper as well. I match the center, and marked where the appliqué should be.

I fused the appliqué then join all 3 units.
Voilà:

The panel measures 5-1/2” x 7” from raw edge to raw edge.

Z CROSS
Panel Size : 5” x 6-1/2” (finished)
Block Size: 2-1/2” x 2-1/2” (finished)

Cutting Instructions:
#18: 5 squares 1” x 1” ; 4 squares 2” x 2” (oversize)
#13: 5 squares 1” x 1”; 4 squares 2” x 2” (oversize)
#16: 16 squares 1” x 1”; 8 (not 9) squares 2” x 2” (oversize)
#15: 8 squares 1” x 1”
Background: 2 squares 3” x 3” ; 1 rectangle 2” x 5-1/2”
Just a reminder when you trace the 50% appliqué: you have to extend ¼” beyond the dotted line to make up for the 50% seam allowance.

Do the same for tracing the middle of the “Z”.

However, you can’t use the 50% copy for placement: ask me how I know… If you do, this is what you will get:

I’ll tell you in the next post how I handled it.

YANKEE PUZZLE

Panel Size : 3" x 6-1/2"
Block size 3" x 3" (finished)

Cutting instructions:

Color #24: 8 squares 2-1/2" x 2-1/2" (will be cut down to correct size, but that will be enough)

Each color (#1, #20, #17 and #6) 2 squares 2-1/2" x 2-1/2"

Background: 1 rectangle 3-1/2" x 4"

Each QST must be 3/4" finished, so, cut them to 1-1/4", aligning the 5/8" mark on the center:

Following the rest of the instructions, the finished block will be 3-1/2" x 3-1/2" from raw edge to raw edge.

Then at step 5, sew the background rectangle to the bottom, and appliqué the "Y"in place. I had a 3/4" margin on each side, and 1" at the bottom.

DSC08687.jpg



The finished panel from edge to edge is 3-1/2" x 7'.
