January:Color Therapy String Quilt!

I think we can all use some serious color therapy this time of year! So pull out your most colorful fabrics and your 6" square ruler. Cut some strips 1.25" - 1.5" wide.

Cut the first strip long enough to span the ruler diagonally, as shown below.

Add more strips, as shown below, checking to be sure the block is a little bigger than the 6" ruler.

Sew strips to the second half of the block. Press. Trim to a 6" square.

Bring your block(s) to the next meeting. Enter your name in the drawing for all the blocks, one time for each block that you bring. You may win all the blocks and be well on your way to having a new Color Therapy quilt! Have fun!
