Also during my evening of uninterrupted sewing time, I got another block done on my Civil War Diary Quilt. The block is called 'Church'. It is a classic pattern that went together easily. So here's how I did it....
|As always, I choose fabrics similar to the picture in Rosemary's book.|
|I printed up the foundation paper from the companion CD that works with EQ. And I decided to rotary cut the pieces to the block and sew them together traditionally using a scant 1/4" seam.|
|First with your cream fabric cut 2 2 1/2" squares|
|Then cut the squares corner to corner to form 4 triangles|
|Here I am sewing the cream triangles onto the square.... all four sides....|
|The center is done... remember to square it up to measure a 3 1/2" square centering the gold square.|
|Here I am adding the 'outer' border sections.|
