Honoring Women's Rights ~ Week 41

Contrary Wife
 
 
We are quilting along with Barbara Brackman's
Block of the Week, Grandmother's Choice.
 
 
 
This is how I made my block.  The directions
may differ from the original.
 
 
Fabric Requirements:
Fabric A: Red
3 - 3  3/16'' squares
 
Fabric B: Green
2 - 4'' squares
 
Fabric C: White
2 - 4'' squares - Mark a
diagonal line on back.
 
Fabric D: Blue
2 - 3  3/16'' squares
 
 
Make Half Square Triangles:
Pair Fabric B and Fabric C 3  3/16''
squares, with right sides together.
Sew 1/4'' away from each side of the
drawn line.  Press seam to the Fabric B.
Square to 3  3/16''.
 
 
Layout units as shown and sew together
in 3 rows.  Press seams in rows 1 & 3 to
the outside and seams in row 2 to the inside.
 
 
Sew rows together and press final seams
open to reduce bulk.  Square to 8 1/2''.

Here are a few ways to use this block in
a quilt, it's all about how you position the
same block!
