May Rivervalley Block of the Month

This months block is brought to us by Paulette.  First up is a traditionally pieced block.  Scroll down for a few modern interpretations.

I was sent lovely images of the process, but unfortunately they wouldn't work on the blogger platform.  So you get written instructions only.

Cut a 10 1/2" piece of background fabric.  From the hashtag fabric cut two 2" x 10 1/2" pieces and two 2" x 12 1/2" pieces.

Cut the background fabric into three pieces 3 1/2" x 10 1/2".

Sew the shorter hashtag pieces between the background rectangles.  Turn and cut into 3 1/2" x 12 1/2" pieces.

Sew the remaining hashtag strips between the rectangles.  Throughout the block press the seams towards the hashtag fabric.

Now for a few more blocks from Paulette.

The process for these blocks was explained at the meeting.

For my version I started with a 10" block.  I cut it into 3 1/2" strips on the outer edges and a 3" strip in the centre.  I added 2" x 10" hashtag fabric strips between the rectangles.

I turned the block and then slashed at an angle as shown.  The second cut is the same angle, 3" away.

I sewed the hashtag fabric cut into 2' x 12" strips between the pieces.  I then squared it up to 10 1/2" and added a 1 1/2" sashing around the block to bring it up to 12 1/2".

  1. In this fashion my colleague Wesley Virgin's story launches with this SHOCKING AND CONTROVERSIAL video.

    Wesley was in the army-and shortly after leaving-he discovered hidden, "SELF MIND CONTROL" tactics that the CIA and others used to obtain whatever they want.

    THESE are the exact same secrets tons of famous people (notably those who "come out of nowhere") and elite business people used to become rich and successful.

    You probably know that you use less than 10% of your brain.

    Mostly, that's because the majority of your brain's power is UNTAPPED.

    Maybe this expression has even occurred INSIDE OF YOUR own head... as it did in my good friend Wesley Virgin's head around seven years ago, while riding an unregistered, trash bucket of a car without a driver's license and $3 on his banking card.

    "I'm absolutely frustrated with living check to check! When will I finally succeed?"

    You took part in those types of questions, ain't it so?

    Your own success story is going to happen. Go and take a leap of faith in YOURSELF.
