You can see in the first pictures I sewed two strips together. Then I trimmed the middle strip to 1/16th less than an inch. To get a 12 1/2" quilt block you will need to use a 2 1/2" template. So to get the seams to line up right I had to use a slightly less than 1 inch to trim. If you don't care if they overlap then you can use either 1" or 3/4".

You can make it larger or smaller by using a different size template.
You can use this quilt block any way you like.
If you need a template just pm me and send me your postal address.
DO NOT put your address within your post on this thread!!
I send the 2 1/2" out for free.
This Quilt Block is made with my Triple Strip shortcut block

Bonjour fellow quilters!
My friend and I would like to start a patchwork circle for our church members, which isn't very commonplace here in France. Can anyone give suggestions or a personal experience? How are they organized? Are the blocks/panels inspired by a particular Bible passage discussed while sewing? Are the finished articles displayed in the church, given to charity, sold for offering? Merci!
I'm looking for a bobbin case for this old Viking. I believe it to be an Eaton's (Canadian department store) machine. Does anyone have any information that can help me locate a bobbin case and extra bobbins? Here is a photo of his charming self and a photo from the original manual. The manual says he is a Viking series 825 and his serial number is 679-5115 C2 (the 2 is smaller and inside the C).
Thank you in advance for any information you can provide.
