Hi, This is Amanda from Hive 8. This is my second year in Stash bee. Last year I asked for a paper pieced block and this was the end result. It is one of my favorite quilts and lives on my bed now.
This year I would like to make a version of Faith Jones Scrap Plus quilt that she wrote a tutorial for Bernina's We All Sew.
Here is the link below. When following the directions, scroll down to the section that starts the Block Instructions on the tutorial.
For my block I would like the scrappy section to be the same color family of either Kelly Green, Navy or Mint Green. I am ok with you using solids. As you see my stash is mainly solids and blenders.
For the background pieces please use a solid white.
Here are some photos of my pull:
Kelly Green- Carkai (Carolyn Friedlander), Pearl Bracelets in Parrot, RJR Kelly Green solid
Mint Green- Studio stitch, cotton and steel basics, and Kona Aloe
Navy- Cotton and steel sprinkle, Navy solid, Domino dot navy.
I ended up only using 3 fabrics for my scrappy block.
I cut one 1.5 inch strip from each of the 3 fabrics and then subcut them so they were 3 x 1.5 inches.
From the white you need to cut (4) 5.5 x 5.5 squares and (1) 2.5 x 2.5 square
Then you just sew the rows together and your block should finish at 12.5 x 12.5
Here are examples of each color.
