Hello all! A big welcome to those stopping by today for the first time. I hope you will have a look around and stay awhile.
Today is my day on the Let’s Get Acquainted Blog Hop hosted by Beth at Plum & June. If you haven’t been following along, you should. There have been lots of great tutorials!
Beth came up with some fun questions for us to answer so you all can get to know me a little better.
Now that I’ve babbled on and on it’s time for a little tutorial. I’m calling this block Spaced Out 4 Patch. I’m sure it’s nothing new but it’s very versatile. So here we go…
Here’s a look at what you will need to put together a 6″ finished Spaced Out 4 Patch.
First you will sew the white blocks to the purple strips.
Then you sew the middle purple strip in place. It’s that easy…now you have a Spaced Out 4 Patch.
I went even further and added more borders around the basic Spaced Out 4 Patch.
I needed a 10″ finished block so I added borders and offset the 4 Patch for some extra pizazz!
Here’s a look at the measurements if you want to make a block like my 10″ block.
I’m not going to write a bunch of step by step instructions. This block is simple enough that it’s very easy to see what I did in the pictures. Just add each strip until you have a 10.5″ unfinished block!
Here’s a little look at how I plan on using the Spaced Out 4 Patch mixed with solid 10″ squares. I’m going to do an every other kind of layout.
The versatility of this little block is endless. You could add the same size border on each side or mix it up. Or use it without any additional borders. The choices go on and on!
I hope you have all enjoyed my little tutorial. Make sure you stop by the other bloggers that are participating in the hop.
