Honoring Women's Rights ~ Week 31

Tinted Chains

We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.

This is how I made my block, it may differ a
bit from the original.

It is Easter Sunday here in the USA.  Finally, it
looks like Spring has arrived though I have heard 
rumors of snow flurries in a few days.  Noooooo!
I am so happy to see Spring-like weather that it 
inspired my fabric choices this week.  Something
bright and happy and floral.

Fabric Requirements:

Fabric A: Large Floral
4 - 3 5/16'' squares

Fabric B: Pink Medium Floral
1 - 3 5/16'' square

Fabric C: Pink & White Print
1 - 5 3/16'' square - cut twice
on the diagonal.

Fabric D: Turquoise Floral
2 - 2 7/8'' squares - cut once
on the diagonal.

Make Triangle Units - Step 1:

Layout 2 Fabric C triangles and 1 Fabric A
square as shown and sew together.  Press
