Stash Buster BOM - Independence Day Bonus Block
Happy 4th of July - Independence Day!!!
Bonus Block - 4 Patch
Since I will be off celebrating the Independence Day holiday I thought I would give you an extra block this month - super easy but you need 17 of them.
Please refer to the original fabric guide to choose your fabrics.The fabricsin these 4 patch cornerstone blockswill be the same throughout—but remember, as with all the blocks, you can make them scrappy or whatever you like—it’s your quilt.
Note: The sashing fabrics touch these cornerstone fabrics—so plan accordingly. The sashing is a two pieced sashing—two different fabrics that coordinate with these four patches. Important to note: the “chain blocks” (not yet released) use these two fabrics to tie the quilt together as well. Please refer to the original fabric requirements document if you are unsure about choosing these fabrics. My fabrics are posted and will give you an idea about color and value.
Super simple to make. For A, cut two 2" squares of each of your two fabrics and sew them together as shown in the picture above. You can also strip piece them if you like since you need 17 of them.
Have fun making these. The regular July blocks will be posted on Saturday July 13th.
