To honor Diana Engelbrecht for all the work she has done while being our president for 2 years (in September) I am requesting each member to make a quilt block. She has requested a signature block. The blocks will be due at the May meeting. I will put the blocks together, have it quilted and bind it.
The directions for the block is as follows: 1. Cut the background cream/ivory square 4 ½ inches. 2. Cut the 2 corner squares 3 ½ inches in your choice of fabric from your stash. The fabric should represent who you are. No holiday fabric please (example Easter eggs, pumpkins, scaredy cats, Christmas trees). 3. Mark a line through the middle of the corner squares diagonally from one corner to the other. 4. Line up on corner square in the corner of the background and sew along your marked line. 5. Press the triangle back. Please DO NOT trim. Repeat 4 & 5 in the opposite corner.
Sign your block. We will have pens at the check-in desk at the guild meetings that you can use to sign if you don’t have one. It is helpful to press a piece of freezer paper on back to stabilize it while you are signing
