Va Va Voom – It’s June
I’m calling this a Vee block–accepting that you all may think my imagination has run dry as I move from last month’s Tee block …
There are lots of ways to construct it, and I’ll post more about that later, but let’s start by considering Paper Foundation Piecing.
You can download the paper foundation pattern here: Vee Block Foundation
After you print it, be sure to measure to confirm that the outside square in the pattern (including seam allowances) measures 6 1/2 inches.
Background: a solid or tone-on-tone cream or light tan
Vees: a green solid or print that is predominately green
This time of year in New Mexico is just about as green as it gets, with many different shades of green dotting the landscape. It’s my color inspiration for this month … also a little surprising because we had snow here, the week before last.
You can make a maximum of 9 blocks this month. If you make multiple blocks, you can use the same background for all your blocks, but each should have a unique green fabric for the Vee.
Use the tag Vee when you post your blocks this month.
Quilt Layout Idea
The quilt layout uses 52 Vee blocks and 48 plain 6 1/2-inch squares, with a 6 inch border.
