How about a nice bold block for August's block drive? Every month quilt bloggers give Covered in Love a boost through our block drives. Make a block or two or ten to help us bring comfort quilts to families who have lost loved ones. This month we're doing a disappearing 9 patch.
Pull black and white fabrics and one accent fabrics per block. Try to go for true, crisp black and whites, not fabrics with a bunch of grey. Accent colors are lime green, Caribbean blue, and bright yellow. I pulled some examples to show you. My lime doesn't look very lime-y, but you get the idea.
Cut (8) 5.5" squares from the black and white fabrics and one from the accent fabric and arrange into a 9 patch with the accent square in the center.
Sew together into a 9 patch.
Subcut the 9 patch in half vertically and horizontally by measuring 2.5" in on the center patch.
Arrange as shown and sew back together. Blocks should finish at 15" sq.
Thank you to everyone who sews along and sends in blocks every month. If you would like to support us by sewing some blocks this month, please do! You can email me at CoveredinLoveTx@gmail.com or leave a comment here for a mailing address.
