Connie, Here is yours! I love your colors. Its going to be beautiful! I learned a lot doing yours, I hope you like it:)
Now for March!
While traveling through Wyoming and Utah I bought a McCall's Quilting magazine July/August issue. This quilt was designed by Beth McGinn and she calls it, "Nine Patches in Paradise". Here's the completed square Lots of color!
3 - 2" X 20" strips of material 2 lighter colors and 1 darker color.
3 - 2" X 10" strips of material 2 darker colors and 1 lighter color.
5 - 5" X 5" squares
4 - 2" X 2" squares of 5 different colors (so total of 20 2" squares)
Your colors may not match mine.
Now sew the 3 - 2 x 10 strips together, place the darker colors on the outside.
Then sew the 3 - 2 x 20 strips together placing the lighter colors on the outside.
Take the 20" strips and cut into 8 - 2" segments. You will use these to make the 4 more 5" squares to complete the block.
You will take two segments from the 20" strip and one segment from the 10" strip. Place the segments from the 20" strip on the outsides of the segment from the 10" strip. Do this 4 times completing 4 more 5" squares. Alternate the colors so the matching colors are diagonal to each other. See below. (ignore the red square below the 9 small squares I'm describing right now:))
Now arrange like I have below. Take the 5 original squares placing 4 of them on each corner and one in the middle. Take the 4 new 5" squares made from the segments and put them in between the others. Sew together like my first picture Enjoy! (By the way if you have like colors that you would rather use feel free. The more different colors the better. It wouldn't bother me in the slightest)
