The Fabrics for "Bee Challenged"
are 1/4yd. pieces in red, white and black
and I thought that with the addition of some bits from stash I would have plenty for a quilt and decided that it would be perfect to try out the Next Generation pattern.
For any who aren't familiar with this pattern, What follows is a simple tut.
Assuming [always a risky business, lol] that you already know how to make the 9 patch, you then cut it through the middle in both directions as for a basic D9P.
Take one of the resulting squares and place it on a tone on tone, solid or other contrasting fabric square the same size, right sides together.
Draw a diagonal line corner to corner across the block as shown, being careful to mark exactly as above, with the line below the small center patch, in this case the solid black.
and cut apart on the marked line between the stitching.
So there is another fast, easy and effective design and another way to use up small yardage pieces and scraps!
