---each block will need 2 different polka-dotted prints and one white background print

Party Hat Block

--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.
