Quick question is there cutting instructions for block 1 and 2 somewhere or did I miss them? Thanks Mirabelle for providing these for us!!

post #353 in original SYE post for block #1(see attachment)

post #433 in original SYE post for block #2:

I already had these measured, so didn't pay attention to if there were any updates after these were posted...

added--just saw this for block #1: "It is definitely time for me to put my head on a pillow,,, if you are going to use my cutting for the first block #3 should be 1 3/4 x 4 3/4... "


SO here is the cutting instructions for Block 2

#1 1 1/2 x 3 1/4
#2&3 3 1/2 x 2
#4 3 x 1 1/2
#5&9 2 1/4 x 1 1/2
#6 3 x 2
#7&11 3 x 1 1/2
#8 4 x 1 1/2
#10 3 1/2 x 2 1/2
#12 3 1/2 square
#13&16 5 x 3 1/2 cut in half on the diagonal
#14&17 4 x 2
#15&18 3 1/2 square

TIP. As there is a lot of background for this block I cut a strip the width of the fabric by the largest measurement, in this case 5 inches and will subcut my units until it is all gone, then cut another strip from the largest measurement left. I have found over the years that hacking into a piece for random units uses more fabric. I hope this makes sense.

Anael - my kitty does the same thing - has to be in the middle everything. Trying to quilt is a pain - he just loves the sandwiched quilts, and he gets upset if I move him off to quilt anther area! LOL

Aww I am sure it is great! Sometimes we are harder on ourselves wish we could see your 1st blck. But that is okay I understand if you are not happy with it then that is all that matters. Will wait and see your new creation then

These are so beautiful! I think I want to do this also. I will make the first block to see if I "can" do this, if so can I just join along? Any rules to follow?

sunrise450 we are doing one block per fortnight with block 2 posted on the 17th September. You will have to download your patterns from Quilting on the Square (they are free). If you wish to read the original post for the SYE BOM Quilt Along you will see the guidelines.

Number 1 rule is to have fun with it. I have posted the cutting instructions for the first 2 blocks as above and cutting instructions for block 3 is a couple of pages back.

Welcome and hope to see your blocks soon

Anael you are too funny, go find your brain and finish that block now to pop over to Quilting on the Square and download the next block, won't get to it today as still trying to catch up after the weekend. Pssstt I left my brain on the mountain and I'm not going back to find it
