BOM - March 2015 - Two Halves

This month's block of the month was suggested by Evelyn... I can't remember what it was called so I have renamed it 'Two Halves'

 

 
It is relatively simple, but I think all together it will look really effective.

Please no novelty prints for any of these blocks. Lets keep them tonal, solid, spots, stars, checks or small tone on tone prints
As usual we ask for: NO PINK, NO PURPLE, NO FLORALS OR ANYTHING GIRLY PLEASE.
(Note: My block is red with a small red print.. looks pink but I promise it's not...LOL)

A little reminder that you need to post these to me and not to Jan-Maree please, she has lots and lots to organise and if they go to her it adds to her long list of things to do. Thanks everyone.

You will need :

Fabric 1 (darker): 
- three 2 1/2in x 7 1/2in strips
- two 2 1/2in x  10 1/2in strips

Fabric 2 (lighter):
- two 6 1/2in x 7 1/2in rectangle
- one 3 1/2in x 10 1/2in strip


Sew the 6 1/2in x 7 1/2in fabric 2 (lighter) rectangle to the left- and right-hand sides of a 2 1/2in x 7 1/2in fabric 1 (darker) strip and press the seams towards the darker print. This is the left side of the finished block.



Next Stitch the 2 1/2in x 10 1/2in fabric 1 (darker) strips to the left- and right-hand sides of a 2 1/2in x 10 1/2in fabric 2 strip and press the seams outwards.



Sew the remaining 2 1/2in x 7 1/2in fabric 1 (darker) strips to the upper and lower edges of the three stitched strips and press the seams outwards. This is the right side of the finished block.





Stitch the two sides of the block together to complete and press the seam in one direction.

 

Your done ..... very easy...

So make as many as you feel comfortable with and send them to me at
