Quilt Along 2014
In the planning of your project for this quilt along, the cut of your chosen fabrics will be used to determine the layout and block size for the quilt you will be making.
The oblongagon is made from a square, but a rectangle can also be used.
Here are some possible cuts which can be made from fat quarters and half yard cuts.
the Chevron, the Flower and the Random designs.
Of those 12 prints, I determined how many of each colour there were: 2 dark blue, 2 light blue, 2 yellow, 1 white, 4 green and 1 orange. And each print cut into 5.5″ x 6″ pcs would result in 12 flower petals or 2 flowers each.
When it came time to cut, I chose the best use of my fat quarters. These fat quarters measured 18″ x 21″ so I cut each of them into 12 pieces at 5.25″ x 6″ a lot like the third diagram at the beginning of this post.
I used two half yard cuts for my solids. First I cut those half yards each into fat quarters. Then I cut one fat quarter from each colour in the same manner, making 12 pieces of each solid.
I cut 6 strips for binding from each remaining fat quarter and will use them to make a scrappy binding.
Tune in next week to see how to turn those blocks into the OBLONGAGON!
Keep On Quilting On!
