We're doing simple Hunter's Star blocks this time. You color palette is any and all shades of blue. For each block you'll need one print and one solid. The print can have other colors too as long as it's mainly blue. Note that each block is only made from two fabrics.
From the solid and the print cut (1) 6.5" square and (4) 4" squares.
Mark a pencil line diagonally on the backs of one set of small squares. Place them right-sides-together with the other small squares and sew 1/4" to either side of the line. Cut on the line to separate (2) HST blocks. You should have (8) HSTs. Press them and trim to 3.5".
Lay out your block as shown above. Sew together the HSTs, then sew together the entire block, and press. Finishes at 12.5".

This block drive will run until the end of April. Any one can participate and you can pick and choose the block drives throughout the year that you want to do, there's a new one every 2 months! If you'd like to send in blocks please leave a comment or email me to get the address (firstname.lastname@example.org) and have them in the mail by May 1.
