OH, MY STARS, BLOCK #10 SWAMP ANGEL

Hello and welcome back to Oh, My Stars. 

Just a note before we go further, this is the last block that you need to make ONE of.  We will be making TWO of the same block for the next 9 blocks. Also, as I seem to have a hard getting my blocks ready on Saturdays, I will be posting on Sunday from here on.  Work has been very busy lately and just to tired to sew straight by the end of the week.  My apologies!

This is block #10 and is Swamp Angel, a very pretty and easy block to make.  I was unable to find at quilters.cache. The block should measure 6.5 inches square when finished.  Again, and still, I am using 10 inch squares from my stash to make the blocks and I am still keeping my scraps and incorporating them into other blocks. 

Here are the colors that I chose for the block.  Quite colorful but they play together nicely.  You will need 5 colors for the block, 3 dark and 2 light.

The sewing directions are fairly easy:

For color 1 dark and color 2 light you will need to cut the following:

Two 3 1/4 inch squares cut into quarters to make 8 triangles.  Sew those together to make 4 Four X blocks.

For color 3 dark and color 4 light you will need to cut the following:

Two 2 7/8 squares cut in half to make 4 half square triangles.

The final dark color 5 will need a 2.5 inch square block for the center.

 

Here is a picture of the block laid out before sewn together:

Here is a picture of the pieces of the block that you will need.

Thanks for dropping by.  The next block will be ready next Sunday and you will need to make 2 of each. 

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
