Tuesday Group - Union Block Challenge 2017

Clare Lewis is running a very successful block challenge with the Tuesday group.

I have designed a quilt for everyone using the Union block.  I hope you join in and have some fun.

Over the course of the next eight months I will hand out directions to make 6 blocks.  On the ninth month I will give out the quilt assembly instructions.  The finished quilt will have the Union block made in a variety of finished sizes of 4.5 inches to 12 inches.  I suggest you use fabrics from your stash. I have not included borders in the final measurement, you can make your own design when you get to that point, although if you need assistance I am available to help.

Bring your finished blocks along to show everyone and to help keep on track.

The basics:

  • Directions to be handed out at the first meeting of each month.  
  • 8 months.  
  • 6 blocks per month of a specified size.  
  • Bring completed blocks to the first meeting of each month.  
  • On the 9th month quilt assembly instructions.  
  • Choose your own colours.  
  • 3.5 meters background fabric, (if you choose to use the same throughout) this is prior to borders. 
  • Finished quilt prior to borders is 49.5 inch x 63 inch.  

Most importantly Enjoy!

Questions? Feel free to contact me.
