Once again it's my turn to lead the Emerge circle in our quilt for this month. As someone who could barely stand to plug in my iron this past week due to a ridiculous heat wave, I'm keeping it easy this month. We'll be making a scrappy black and white plus quilt.
Instead of the usual 2 blocks, I'm asking each member of the circle to make one larger block and one strip, all from 5" squares.
(15) 5" square white/cream low volume or solid fabrics
(5) 5" square black/dark grey fabrics
* Please make sure you are using modern quilt-shop quality fabrics.
Arrange and sew per this picture - you will make one 4x4 block (measuring 18.5 x 18.5" when sewn) and 1 1x4 strip (measuring 5 x 18.5"):
Please press your seams open to avoid bulk and ship to me when you're ready.
In the meantime, I'll finish up my May blocks and get quilting the other two Emerge dgs quilts I have in the works.
