|May 2017 Pieced Blocks |
Hugs and Kisses
We want our military men and women to know that we appreciate their ser-vice, so we will be making blocks with hugs and kisses on them! Fabric: Use reds, whites and blues. Cutting per block: A Squares—Cut 8 squares 3 1/2 x 3 1/2 (red, white or blue) B squares—Cut 4 squares 5 1/2 x 5 1/2 (red, white or blue, but different from above squares)
|Directions: Using a marking pen draw a diagonal line from corner to corner on the back of each A square. Place an A square on a corner of a B square, right sides together and stitch on the line. Trim 1/4” from the stitching line and press toward the outside corner. Repeat with another A square on the op-posite corner of a B square.
Sew the units in 2 rows of 2 units then press the seams in opposite directions. Sew the rows together to complete blocks. The blocks should measure 10 1/2, 10 1/2”.|

|Quilts of Valor|
Select red, white and blue fabrics, either patriotic designs or prints that read as solids. Cut into 1 1/2” strips approximately 16” long. Sew together in red, white, blue order. Cross cut into 3 1/2” sections. Sew 4 sections together to form a 6 1/2” block. Sew the 4 blocks together to form one 12 1/2” block.
