Block Challenge and Lottery – Converging Corners

This month’s block challenge is called Converging Corners, based on a tutorial by Ashley at Film in the Fridge.

When the blocks are put together, a fun design is created where the corners converge!  It’s a great way to use up scraps and strips!

The details:

  • The block pattern is Converging Corners by Film in the Fridge
  • Make one or more blocks, 12″ finished size (12 1/2″ square)
  • Use the same color scheme in the tutorial : solid white for the background, bright (saturated color) prints or solids for the rest. Use a large, fun print for the center square.
  • Bring your block to the April meeting.  Each block will give you one ticket for the block lottery.

My tip – mark the center of a 12 1/2 inch square ruler to help you keep your center square near the middle of the block:DSCN3422
