QNT Black & white & Senders choice all-around 2020

3-10-20 thru 4-5-20

--1 partner

--2 different blocks to your partner

--SENDERS CHOICE print all around the black and white

This block series will be a great way to use up some small scraps of fabrics from our stash, or you can go buy more fabric in quarter yard cuts.…you have my permission!

Each month we will exchange 2 different blocks with one partner and keep 2 blocks for ourselves.

Please note that the instructions below are for ONE block only, you will have to repeat it 4 times to get the suggested 2 different blocks to send and 2 blocks to keep.

*use 1/4-inch seam allowance to end up with a 8 1/2 inch block

Bright colored prints are best for the border fabrics. For this series we will use print fabrics only, no solids. Small prints work better for these blocks than large prints.

Cutting instructions for one block:

Cut 2 different black and white prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½”

Cut 6 SENDERS CHOICE colored prints into rectangles: 2 ½” X 4 ½”

Assembly per block:

1.Sew the 2 black and white prints together to create center of the block. (assemble on the 4 ½ inch side, NOT at the end of 2 ½” side.) This creates your center. Press seams.

2.Attach a SENDERS CHOICE print rectangle to each end of center block. (lay center block on the table with the 4 ½” side closest to you) Attach one SENDERS CHOICE print rectangle to each end on the left and right. Press.

3.Sew 2 SENDERS CHOICE rectangles together end-to-end on the 2 1/2“sides making a long rectangle. Repeat with the other 2 SENDERS CHOICE rectangles. Attach one of these units to the top and one to the bottom of the block. Press.

I hope my instructions are clear, and if they are not, please let me know. I love to look at an assembled block as my example, so you can look at the picture on this swap to see what you will end up with.

FUTURE ROUNDS the black and white centers will have these colors/prints around them :

1 senders choice 2020

2 recipients favorite color 2020

3 bright, wild and or crazy print 2020

Have fun and swap-on!

Dropping out of this series -- I made several extras and then made a quilt. It's cheery and fun and I'll give it to some organization that needs stuff for needy people.
