April Block Instructions for Simply Solids Quilting Bee


The April Block for the Simply Solids Quilting Bee,

Fallow Group,

is based on the following block

from the Gourmet Quilter.

It is called a Corners Block from 5" Squares.

I have used this block in my latest quilt "Unbridled Joy"  see photos two posts ago, and also on my flikr photostream.

Please watch the video here for your instructions.


I hope you like the block…it is great for scrappy quilts, and for the Simply Solids theme…here.


Each Fallow group member will be sent a pack of 9 central 5" squares, one of which is the slightly tawny one which will go in the centre

of the block.  The grey squares will be in the surrounding positions as in my photo.  The other colors will be used randomly to add the corners.  

Easy!  My block measures approx 14" finished.  I have not opened my seams, so just do it your normal way.


I do hope it all comes together well.

If you are new to this Simply Solids Modern Bee…it has all been organised by the very busy Erin over at Sew at Home Mummy.
