February 2009 BOM #1

Oh gee, I'm late on posting a block of the month for February. I've had it done, just neglected to get the pic and instructions posted here.

There will two blocks for February. The first one is a traditional block called Grandmother’s Choice. Here's a picture, and the link is for the instructions on Quilterscache:

The picture on Quilterscache shows it made in two colors, but I used three so I could keep that red center triangle. If you like the more traditional look, you might want to stick with one color plus the background color.

The half-square triangles on this one are a little different because one half of them is pieced from a 2-1/2 inch square with 2-7/8” triangles added to two of the sides to make the larger triangle. If you are sewing an accurate quarter-inch seam and pressing carefully, they should fit just fine.

I'll have another one done (and posted!) mid-month.

  1. I will have to pass on doing this months block. I still did not get last months done either. This one is much too hard for me yet. But I hope to try once I learn some more about triangles and squares together. It looks very nice! I want to do some in red, whites and blues- the block of the month for Quilting for All group.
    Congrats on being done!
