Welcome back to the Rainbow Quilt Block of the Month designed by Janome Maker Carolina Oneto! You are over halfway done with your beautiful quit! Give yourself a pat on the back and get ready to start your next block!
This month you will learn how to make block seven, the Rolling Stone quilt block.
I sew all the blocks on my Janome 1600P-QC, which I really love, one of the great things about this machine is that the bobbin winder is independent of other mechanisms and the speed control is variable depending on the user’s need. These are only a couple of the features that make sewing and quilting fuss-free.
Please read through all instructions prior to piecing. Remember that all the blocks will have a finished size of 12” so that means the unfinished size will be 12 1/2”. All seam allowances are 1/4"
- Five 4 1/2” squares
- One strip 2 1/2” x 18”
·Sixteen 2 1/2” squares
One strip 2 1/2” x 18”
INSTRUCTION FOR SQUARE IN A SQUARE UNITS
Mark the wrong side of the LIGHT BLUE 2 1/2″ squares in half once diagonally. Lay marked square right sides together with a white 4 1/2″ square and sew on the marked line. Repeat on the diagonally opposite corner. Repeat on the other corners. Make 4. Unit measures 4 1/2″ unfinished.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR THE RECTANGLE UNITS
- Sew the two long strips of fabric, right sides together. Next, cut your sewn strip of fabrics into four equal parts. 4.5”. Press to the dark side.
- Arrange your blocks in the correct layout
- Using a quarter-inch seam allowance, sew together in rows. Join all rows, using a quarter-inch seam allowance.
- Press your completed block and trim down to 12.5″ square (if necessary).
And that’s all!
