12 x 12
As some of you may remember a few friends and I are doing a 12 x 12 challenge each month. This is mine for April. We have not had a chance to meet and show each other yet because everyone was sick or afraid of getting sick!
These are the blocks that I have started to make a quilt for my brother in law, David. My 12 x 12 was made from the scraps of this quilt. It is a fun way to work and I think it is an easy way to be creative.
This is how I hang my little quilts. Take about a 3 or 4 inch square. Fold it in half, wrong sides together and press well. Put it on the corner of the quilt with your raw edges matching. Sew it on using an 1/8" seam allowance. You are looking to just keep it in one place without using pins. Repeat on the other side and then apply your binding as usual. You can use a chop sitck or small dowel to hang it.
