QnT Polka-dotted Party Hats block series 2020
1-9-20 thru 2-9-20
--1 polka-dotted print Party Hat quilt block each month mailed 12 1/2" X 12 1/2"
---each block will need 2 different polka-dotted prints and one white background print
--senders choice of color Polka-dotted print each month
In 2019 I managed to accumulate a LOT of polka dotted print fabric from various swaps and I would like to use up some of that fabric. I think this will make a fun quilt when all assembled together.
Each block will feature a different colored Party Hat in polka-dotted print fabrics with white or tone-on-tone white background fabric. The polka-dotted prints can be any color on any color background. 100% cotton quilting fabric
Note: if you should get the same partner twice please send a different color party hat the second time to them. We would like to accumulate a wide variety of colored Party Hat blocks.
Party Hat Instructions
White or tone-on-tone white Background
A. four squares 4 ½ X 4 ½ inches, for corners
B. one square 5 ¼ X 5 ¼ inch cut twice diagonally for part of unit 1
First polka-dotted print
C. two squares 4 7/8 X 4 7/8 inch - cut each once diagonally
Second polka-dotted print
D. one square 4 ½ X 4 ½ inches
E. one square 5 ¼” X 5 ¼” cut twice diagonally
Assembly Unit 1 = assemble 4 of these units using one of cut B and one of cut E for each unit. The end result will be a triangle with white on the left, and Second polka-dotted print on the right.
Next sew one of the cut C triangles to the bottom of Unit 1 forming a square 4 ½ X 4 ½ inches.
Once you have these 4 units finished you have completed the hardest part of this block.
Assemble first row of block with one-piece A, then one Unit I, then another one-piece A
Assemble second row of block with one Unit I, then another Unit I
Assemble third row of block with one-piece A, then one Unit I, then final piece A
Press block and mail.
My instructions are labeled a little differently than the attached web-site pattern but end results are the same.
