May Quilt

aquilterstable PRO 1:59pm, 14 April 2014
Hi! Just fyi, due to my schedule the rest of this month, I'm sending fabric for May blocks out in today's mail. I'll post the instructions both here and on my blog by the end of the week. Please, no rush! Feel free to save it for May, I just need it marked off my list so I don't miss doing it entirely!
Thanks,
Debbie

Got my fabric today and was wondering…… thanks for the heads up, it's beautiful so I can't wait to see what you have in store for us.

Great! So here's what I have planned . . .

I would like half-rectangle triangle blocks using THIS TUTORIAL. Here are 2 of my sample blocks: Half-rectangle blocks

A few specifics:
---I am sending fat-quarters of 2 fabrics, a solid and a print. Cut your fabrics 7.5x13.5". You should have enough for two pairs of blocks.
---See step #2 of the tutorial: lay out your fabrics so the solid is on the left and your print is on the right, as shown.
---Please ignore the instructions for Directions for Opposite HRT (Right-Left HRT’s). I only want Left-Right HRT’s - the first kind shown.
---Press seams open before trimming.
---Trim each block carefully following the instructions, checking for the seam allowances as shown in step #5 in the “Squaring” Up Your HRT section. Each of my blocks measured 7x13" unfinished.
---Please don't sew your finished blocks to each other. I'll mix them up when I get them all back.

I realize that these work out ever so slightly larger than our normal 2-12 1/2"x12 1/2" blocks, but the calculations for this block (starting size to ending size) aren't that clear cut, so I'm trusting this minor difference is ok.

If you'd like to know more about the fabrics I'm sending, I'll be posting about this project for my blog readers on 4/17/14. Please let me know if you have any questions! Though this is a simply constructed block, it was new to me, and hopefully to many of you. Have fun and thanks in advance!

I've done these before and they are a great skill set to master. Can't wait to get mine going. I have completed half rectangle quilt laid out totally differently, it will be on my blog soon, but if you want I can forward a photo to you.

My fabrics were here when I came home last night from Vancouver. I'll get to them asap.

I made my blocks last night, I just wanted something straightforward to make. I was very careful I thought but my blocks are about 1/8" out from your expected 13 x 7 expected amount. I expect that you can make them work, but clearly I messed up somewhere (I had even checked my 1/4' seam allowance before I sewed the lines but I am guessing that is where I messed up anyway).

I am off to the mailbox today with these and Mary's blocks.

Shanna, could you post your finished blocks? I don't think I received them, so maybe they got lost in the mail...
