QnT 1930’s print Bow-Tie USA 2020 RED
1-15-20 thru 2-15-20
--this round: mostly red or red background 1930’s reproduction print
[In 2019 we did these as scrappy prints, this year we will do 1930's prints)
Each round we will pick a different colored 1030’s print for the bow-tie and use white or tone-on-tone white for the backgrounds.
Small to medium sized 1930’s prints are best and try to avoid a lot of dark colors: browns, black, etc.
Step 1: From bow tie fabric, cut two 6.5” squares and two 3” squares; from WHITE (background) fabric, cut two 6.5” squares.
Step 2: Use a ruler and pencil to draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the wrong side of the small 3” bow tie squares.
Step 3: Place those 3” squares on the corner of a 6.5” WHITE (BACKGROUND) square, right sides together with the raw edges aligned as shown. The ends of the pencil line should touch both sides of the WHITE (BACKGROUND) square.
Step 4: Sew along pencil line, backstitching at beginning and end if desired. Use ruler and rotary cutter to cut off excess fabric, leaving a ¼” seam allowance. Press seams in preferred direction.
Step 5: Arrange pieces as shown on picture attached to swap, and sew squares into rows. Press seams and sew rows together. One final press, and your 12” (12.5” unfinished) bow tie block is done!
