June/July BOM

June / July 2016 Block of the month
Holiday/Winter Crazy Quilt Square
1) Cut a 10.5” foundation square of muslin or similar plain fabric
2) Fussy cut from fabric the picture you will build your square around. 3 by 5 inches would work well. Now cut an angle off one corner to make it a 5 sided picture. Other options: print an item on printer fabric, applique an ornament or use your embroidery machine to stitch a snowman etc.
3) Baste or fuse this 5 sided piece to the center of 10.5 foundation slightly tilted .
4) Cut strips of fabric various widths 1.5 to 3 inches in width from holiday/winter, and solids to build your block
5) Sew strips of fabric log cabin style counter clock wise around your featured
5 sided piece, pressing after each strip. Trim any strips of fabric out of your
seam allowance as you go.

6) Measure when close to corners so your strip is wide enough. Try not to
have seams close to corner of square.
7) Give square a final press and turn over face down on cutting mat.
8) Following edges of foundation trim excess fabric away
9) If desired, carefully machine baste around perimeter of square less than a
quarter inch from edge.
10) Optional Add any crazy quilt stitching by machine or hand you may
wish. The winner can also do this when she assembles her quilt
