July’s BOTEOM is brought to you by Lynne
This is a simple, wonky block with endless design opportunities depending on how you rotate the blocks.
We will be using solid colors only (thank you to Mickey for putting together our voting palette, the winning color combination is Émile Alain Séguy Dragonflies.
For this block, you can use tints, shades, and tones of above colors. Black is to be used for sidebars.
Fabric needed for each block:
Four-patches = Four 4.5” squares of the palette colors. You may use two, three or four colors
Sidebars = One each 2 x 8.5” and 2 x 10” black strips
- Sew the four-patch together
- Add the shorter black strip to one side
- Sew the longer black strip to an adjacent side
Make a trimming template by cutting off 2.5” from the top of an 8.5×11” sheet of paper.
Lay the template on your block, rotating it slightly so it’s off-center. (Adding a small roll of painters’ tape to the back of the template will keep it from sliding.)
Lay your ruler along one side of the template and trim off the excess.
Repeat for all four sides.
Yay! You’ve made a wonky Sidebar!
