Hello quilters! Welcome to the 2020 March-April Block Drive for Covered in Love! If you are new to CiL or the block drives scroll to the end of this post for more information.
For the Spring months I chose an easy, fun rail fence block that makes blue and yellow pin wheels. We have done this color scheme before (see the picture below) with true blues and yellows.
So, on to the tutorial! First step, choose 3 fabrics in a true blue, bright true yellow, and low volume or white fabric.
For each block you need (4) strips of each color cut to 6.5" long x 2.5" wide.
Sew the sets of strips together into 4 rail fence blocks with blue and yellow on the outsides and white sandwiched in the middle.
Then arrange the 4 rail fence blocks as shown with a blue pin wheel in the middle and sew them into a 12.5" block. Done!
Covered in Love
makes quilts to cover patients who pass away at a Texas hospital and
comfort the families. Anyone can contribute to these drives and make as
few blocks or as many as they like. The current drive runs March through April, so blocks should be in the mail by the end of April. Email
CoveredinLoveTx@gmail.com if you need the address to mail blocks.
Thank you to all of you who have contributed to drives in the past and make our mission possible. We will soon surpass 600 quilts delivered to mourning families!
