72 x 84"
Here's an idea for an innovative set for the twelve blocks in
the Westering Women Block of the Month.
I've called it Way West.
The twelve pieced blocks are in the west.
Arrows from the east point the way west.
A feedsack with a covered wagon on it.
I drew the quilt up in EQ7 with some random pieced blocks
and two simple setting blocks plus 8 plain, unpieced squares.
It's a grid of 6 x 7 blocks, each finishing to 12".
There are 12 Pieced blocks
8 Plain Blocks (Cut 12-1/2" square)
5 Arrow Blocks
and 17 Strip Blocks
The arrows could be done as flag stripes
in reds and the left side could be a sort of a blue field.
Or whatever suits your fancy.
Cutting 12” Finished Arrow BlocksYou Need 5.
A– Cut 1 square 6-7/8”. Cut in half diagonally with a single cut. You need 2 triangles for each block.
B– Cut 3 rectangles 6-1/2” x 4-1/2”.
C—Cut 1 triangle 13-1/4” . Cut into 4 triangles with two diagonal cuts. You need one large triangle per block.
Cutting 12” Finished Strip Blocks
You Need 17.
For each cut 3 strips 12-1/2” x 4-1/2”.
