Block 23 is designed by Betsy Chutchian. |
• In this block you may want to refer to Block 11 instructions for the trick to make corner units. Essentially you will join a 2 sets of a square with a rectangle piece, of the same height. Sew them together where the squares are in opposite corners. Then you will be cutting this piece diagonally by aligning the 1/4" of the ruler with the inside point of the square (and the outside corner of the lower rectangle. Cut leaving a 1/4" seam allowance. Repeat on the remaining corner square. However - see Block 11 for a picture of what is said above.
• PAY attention to the number of size squares you might need to cut with each fabric. You do not need to cut one long strip, unless of course you're making more than one block. If so, then again cut accurately.
You'll also find that the color placement of your fabrics can change the look of this block - for example you might see a plus sign, or create a shoofly, or even a circle. Though not recommended for this particular Mystery Shuffle quilt, create another and set it on point. See how different it looks.
The fabrics we have chosen for this block kit are below:
Weren't able to download the pattern in time, don't worry, it will be made available again after the project is complete.
