LHQSQ - Adding Strips to the Mix

My Left-Handed Quilter's Sampler Quilt -

LHQSQ - See the page/tab above -

So far -

Is comprised of 6” sampler blocks -

That you can make using -

2-1/2” squares -

and HST that FINISH at 2” -

Three across and three down -

Variations of the basic NINE-PATCH -

The sewn block will MEASURE 6-1/2” -

And FINISH at 6” -


Now I’m going to add another element -

Strips - cut 1-1/2” x 2-1/2”

Because -

2 strips that are 1-1/2” wide -

And 2-1/2” long -

When sewn together -

Along the LONG side -

Will measure - 2-1/2” square -

And FINISH at 2” -

Just like the HST - ;))

You can cut them individually -

Or -

You can cut 1-1/2” strips -

Then sew 2 strips into a strip set -

And cut the sets into 2-1/2” segments -

Each segment will finish at 2” -

You can cut 4 segments from a 10-1/2” long strip set -
(2-1/2” x 4 = 10” plus some wiggle room)

For simplicity -

I will just list the number of individual strips -

That you will need to complete the block -

How you choose to cut and sew them -

Is entirely up to you - ;))

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -

I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
