A couple of you were interested in the pattern for these blocks - so I thought I would share with you!!
To make 2 blocks you need 3 - 2.5 by 44 inch strips
Stack 2 strips on top of each other - these you will use to cut the inner and outer round.
The single strip you will use to cut the middle ( second round)
So - the inner and outer round stack -
*the first cut is 4 inches, the second cut is 8, then another 8 , then 10 1/2, and the last cut is another 10 1/2 inches.
* the single strip - that is the inner round - you will cut enough pieces for two inner rounds.
cut 4 - 4 inch pieces, and 4 - 6 1/2 inch pieces
Your block should finish at 10 1/2 by 12 inches. We figured that we needed to set them 5 x 5 -which would be 50 x 60 ish, and add a 5 inch border all the way around....
What do you think - is that as clear as mud? They are really fun and easy ... I stacked enough strips to do 4 blocks at a time and chain sewed them.
Here is the one I made out of bright colors!!
