  • Block of the Every Other Month – Splish Splash – Due July 2021

    Splish Splash

    Presented by Mickey Beebe

    Designed by Anita Grossman Solomon, you can download the free pattern on Robert Kaufman Fabrics

    This BOTEOM will follow the Pantone 2021 Color(s) of the year, which Mickey presented at our April Meeting: PANTONE 17-5104 Ultimate Gray + PANTONE 13-0647 Illuminating (yellow)

    Mickey has made the Splish Splash block in the Pantone colors for our BOTEOM

    Directions:

    Cut one 10″ square from one of the two colors

    Cut one 5″ square from the other of the two colors

    Cut each square twice diagonally. Note that you will only use 2 of the small triangles to complete the block.

    Measure and make a mark 2-1/8” down from the point on the large triangles, then draw a horizontal line on both large triangles.

    Align and center one small triangle under the lines.

    Stitch 1/4″ from each small triangle edge.

    Press small triangle up. Trim by setting a square ruler on top of the large triangle and trim overlapping small triangle.

    Trim away extra large triangle and press seam open.

    Sew pieces together and press

    Trim block to 8-1/2″ square

    Final 8-1/2″ Splish Splash block!
