As the new year turns I find myself reordering my nest and attempting to simplify life. Mostly to streamline the not fun stuff to do and make more time for the fun stuff like quilting. I found a collection of fabrics I purchased last year in my stash. Its called Peacock by Whindham.
(I found this picture of the collection at Sew Mama Sew)
I chose a block that is just the most simple thing to put together that I couldn't even find instructions that were basic enough. Here is my rough set of instructions:
Important Update: When cutting the fabric start from the selvage end, NOT the fold. Sorry, my drawing suggests from the fold... you need the fold to get that last 4 1/2 inch square. Thanks, and let me know if you have any questions!
Completed it will make two very simple blocks of opposing colors. I don't think I could ask you to do more than one block if the pattern was any more difficult.
See, EZ PZ!!!! I chose this simple pattern and these muted tones so that I could feature more intricate quilting patterns than I normally would. I think I"ll do something inspired by peacock feathers.
I can't wait to see you all at the meeting and hand out my fabrics!
