Block 6/52 #52weekswith thequiltersplanner “Eastern Shore”

Here is my version of the Eastern Shore block.  It was a fun one to do and I wanted to capture our sunsets on our “Eastern Shore” with my Anna Maria Horner fabrics. I actually really like this block and I do not very often gravitate to what I sew (I am my own worst critic!).

See my usual high tech picture below for what you need to cut to make this a 9″ finished block like mine above. The tutorial is found on @wandaslifesampler blog – she is the creator of this great block in a 12.5″ unfinished version that is in the Quilter’s Planner. So here are my measurements:

Have fun with this one and will see you next Wednesday with block 7/52!

Block 5/52 #52weekswith thequiltersplanner “Chronograph”

Here is my 9″ block (9.5″ unfinished) version of @meadowmistdesigns block this week.

I named mine Rose Garden and picked my Anna Maria Horner fabrics to try to create a path through a garden.

The tutorial for this is found on Cheryl’s blog but I will give you measurements for my down sized block here.

Here is my worksheet for the block with measurements written in – high tech I know! Each row should measure 3.5″ × 9.5″. The hourglass blocks use 4.5″ squares (1) + (1) to make two 3.5″ hour glass blocks. Then use 3.75″ squares to make the smaller hour glass blocks 2.75″ (4 squares of each fabric in the hourglass to make 8 – you will only use 7).

For the path: from my light colour I cut (2) 1.25 x 10″ (1) 1.25″ x 7.5″

The darker fabric I cut: (2) 1.25 x 7.5″ and (2) 1.25″ x 10″

Have fun with this! The fabric selection really changes the look of this one and it is interesting to see what they all look like on #52weekswiththequiltersplanner

Until next time!
