HST Charity Blocks

Charity Blocks:

At the March meeting, Cecile and Bethany shared methods of choosing color palettes for quilts.  The palette chosen for the charity blocks this time comes from a picture posted to Design Seeds.

We’d like you to make four patch half square triangle units that are assembled randomly using the color palette.  The HST units should be 5.5 inches unfinished sewn together into a 10.5 inch unfinished four patch.  I started with eight 6 inch squares sewn into HST units to make two blocks.  Without rhyme or reason, I assembled the four patches.

The final quilt will be similar to this one.  20150221_155349.jpg

Please bring blocks to the May and June meetings.  Thank you so much for your contributions.
