Sisters of the Cloth

This is the block for our optional block exchange at the Sister of the Cloth classes, July 18, Sept 19 and Nov 21. We are calling it a Charmed Block because we are starting with 5" squares.

If you are making blocks for our exchange in Sisters, use just three colors and place colors as shown in this picture. All four blocks do not have to be the same. In fact, it will work better for our exchange if they are not all the same.

Bring four to each class and take 4 others back home with you. In November, we will provide a setting pattern.

This is a fun block that can be made from any size squares - 2 lights, 1 dark and 1 medium color print. Sisters is using Civil War reproduction fabrics for the exchange.

Cut the light block in half one time.
Cut the dark block in half and then half again to make 4 squares
Leave the medium square uncut
Lay out and stitch to make block shown above.

There are just 5 openings left in our 2015 series of Sisters of the Cloth so contact us soon if you are interested on taking this journey with us. No previous sewing or quilting experience required.
