E-12 Mary Ruth's Corset

The only tricky part on this is the center. You can paper-piece it or follow my inventive? piecing I figured out.

For the center cut 1" squares, 4 dark, 6 light, and also 2 pieces 1 1/4 x 2 3/4 of dark.

Using a scant 1/4" seam, Sew the 1" squares together like this, first in rows of 2 and 3, and then sew the rows together. 

Now trim this unit to 1 1/4 x 2 3/4". 

For the sides make 4 flying geese units with  4 light rectangles 1 5/8 x 2 3/4" and 4 dark squares 1 5/8"  Put a square on the corner of each rectangle to make the flying geese. Corner squares for the block cut 4 light squares 1 5/8"

 

D-9 Uncle Richard

I couldn't find the photos from when I made this one, but I made it much like the one above, with squares on the edges that are trimmed later.

This block is made with squares 1 1/8" and rectangles 1 1/8 x 2 3/8".

Make the center first with 1 light rectangle and 2 light squares, 4 dark ones. 

Then add to it, substituting squares for all those little setting triangles. When you have it all pieced trim like the block above, cutting off all the jagged edges and trim to 4 1/4". Add borders 7/8" wide, or 1" and trim to 5" square

F-4 Old Windmill

Pretty quick and easy one.

Cut center square 1 1/2", 4 rectangles 1 1/2 x 2 5/8. 

For side triangles cut 2 squares 3 ", cut in half diagonally to give you 4 triangles. sew together with diagonal rows.

For corner triangles cut a square 2 1/2", cut diagonally twice to give you 4 triangles. These are oversize, sew on corners and trim to size.

 

TR-5

sorry, I rotated it but when it uploaded it went right back to how it was.

 

Paper-piecing tutorial HERE

Now that I looked at it I realized I never add the top triangle, now I have to go find that blue fabric again!

I'm still here!! Struggling to keep up, and with a job that sometimes requires a 50 hr week I'm not doing so bad! Without counting the latest assignment, I'm only twelve blocks behind. I'm disciplining myself to spend an hour each evening for my blocks, but that is easier said than done! I do follow all the threads and this keeps me motivated!,I love this and everyone who's doing this project...

Thank you Jacy for the latest batch!  I am just now looking at them, have been so sick with the latest bug going around!  Ugh!  Love your "moon" work, wow!  But on TR-5, I am confused, you mentioned a top triangle not added -- I don't see a top triangle missing?  What am I overlooking?

Thanks always for the encouragement to not stress out if we are behind, and just "work on a block".  Such good advice and it really helps me to hear that.

Christine, you are doing amazing at keeping up with this and your job, keep up the good work!

And Jane, and Patricia Faye - wow, there is just no stopping you guys!

Patricia, here's a photo of TR-5 from thatquilt.blogspot.com  See the tiny triangle at the top, I forgot to add mine. 

 

And just keep going ladies, whatever pace you are able. Some people whip this quilt out in a year, others take 10 years......it's a journey, not a race!

D-3 Jason's Jacks

Applique block.......machine or needleturn, make it your favorite way

 

 

 

E-8 Mama's Maze

Little pieces but very easily rotary cut and pieced.......and NO triangles!

Cut from light fabric 8  1" squares and 8  1x1 1/2"

from dark cut a 2" square, 8  1x2",   4    1x3"   and 4  1" squares.

It's really a center square with 3 borders.

F-7 Star Struck


From dark cut a 2 1/4" square and 4 squares 1 3/8"

From light 4 rectangles 1 3/8 x 2 1/4" and 4 squares 1 3/8"

Make flying geese like the first example HERE with the rectangles and dark squares. 

Assemble star and add 1" borders.

 

 

G-9 Mary's Journey

For the center cut  from dark a 1" square, a 3" square cut into 4 QST's and 2  1 1/2" squares cut into HST's (4 total)

from light you need 4 rectangles 1 x 1 5/8th"

Piece the center, the triangles will be big. When done square up to 2 3/4"

For the flying geese cut rectangles (4) 1 5/8 x 2 3/4" and squares (8) 1 5/8th". Make as in block above.

For corners cut 2 squares each of light and dark 2" and make HST's for corners. (2 1/4" if you like to make oversize and trim to 1 5/8" )

I hope one day to get  back to this one...I'm having fits just trying to keep up with the LUS.  I guess I'm no longer Super Mom or Super Grandma, as I can no longer do 3 or 4 things at one time with a demanding, sweet little girl on my lap and the grandsons waiting to be chauffeured somewhere.
