FEB: Old Sayings and Cliches

This quilt will be fun to read! Choose an old saying or cliche (use the links below for ideas if you like), add some red and pink scraps and you're done. 


1. Cut a white 3" square. Stiffen with freezer paper. Using a fabric pen, write your old saying or cliche. Remove the freezer paper.

2. Add 4 tiny corner triangles, as shown below. Press open. Trim.

3. Cut red/pink scraps. Cut two: 2 1/4" x 3 1/4" 
                                    Cut two: 2 1/4" x 6 1/4"

4. First sew the two short strips to the sides, as shown below. Then sew the long strips to the top and bottom.

5. Place a 6" square ruler on the block and trim. 

Enter your name in the drawing to win all the squares, one entry for each block that you bring. You may be the lucky quilter who goes home with all the blocks, and a quilt half finished! 

P.S. The scraps can be red or pink or both. (Bits of other colors are okay.)

  1. There is something about that clean dial, and rolex replica sale case that is intimidating, powerful, professional. It's hardly surprising that Rolex is a household name even among families that could only dream of owning one. Such is the brand's global hublot replica uk that you'd be forgiven for thinking that it was the only luxury watch out there many people can't think of another brand off the top of their fake rolex sale. But, as any horological fan would know, there are many, many more fish in the replica watches sea. Just as a well-known status symbol can be used to intimidate, knowledge that takes you beyond the man shaking your hand can work to your replica watches. Without doubt, a Rolex watch conveys excellent taste, but can you boast the exclusivity that comes with rolex replica sale.
