April 2012 Block of the Month

When making this month's block you get two for the price of one!  Monica aka Happy Zombie put a new twist on the churn dash block and gives instructions for what she calls her Funky Wrench Nuts and Bolts.

Nuts block
The block Monica makes in her tutorial is for a 6" block, but if you scroll to the bottom of the tutorial, you will find information to make the block in other sizes.   For our BOM (which is for a 12.5" unfinished block), use the 12" block measurements shown in blue.

Bolts block
Leave a comment here or send an email if you have any questions on making this block.  Certain steps in the tutorial are presumed, such as making half square triangles with your 4 7/8" squares and piecing the 2 1/2" squares before sewing to the rectangles, so I am happy to help answer any questions.

Remember our block finishes at 12" so make sure you follow those directions!  Bring your block(s) to the April meeting for the OMQG block lotto!
