This week we are again using my new block- Triple Strip Block
So as usual it uses my cut down method which I think makes your blocks more accurate and you have better control of the size as you go.
Just make sure to measure each time you complete a step.
It will save a lot of frustration when you are done.
Here are the steps to the new Triple Strip Blocks
Rhonda's New Shortcut Block- Triple Strip Block
To make this quilt block into a 12 1/2" unfinished size you will need a 2 1/2" template.
You can take a look at the layout picture to see what Blocks you need and where to put the colors. If you change the color arrangement you will get a differant look from mine.
So try it out and see what you can make with this design! Have fun!
If you need any help don't hesitate to ask. I'll be more than happy to help.
If you need templates let me know. I will need your postal address and PLEASE send it by pm or email not on the open board. The templates are FREE no fees or postage needed.
This quilt block I called Wanda - the points or arms that come out of the center made me think of fish fins. so I was thinking -- the movie A Fish Called Wanda LOL Since Wanda is an old fashioned name it works! LOL
This is definately one of my favorites!

You will need to make 3 differant Triple Blocks and make sure you pay attention that you will need to make mirror image blocks for some of them. The ones that I referred to as fish fins are mirror image blocks. That just means you need to pay attention to the colors that are reversed from one side to the other.
I thought it might help if you could see the various color combos and blocks. If you follow the block directions you will see they are easy to make. The link is posted above.
