I have swerved many questions in the comments but will try to clarify for everyone.
On a side note, I’m not sure why this link didn’t work – I’m hoping it fixed itself – haha!
1. Quilt measures 58″ x 74″.
2. Two borders on original quilt, one narrow, one wide – optional. I did not list border fabric in requirements. Wait till your blocks are finished.
3. Nearly any fabric will work. The blocks are very forgiving.
4. No circle “rulers” are needed.
5. Smallest squares could be eliminated because trimming will produce fabric for the 4″ circles.
6. Background fabrics could also be repeated- you just risk getting two identical fabrics together in the same block.
7. 8″ and 6″ squares can also be repeated if you wish. More fabrics guarantee more interest and make it easier to assemble blocks because you’re not having to watch what goes with what.
8. Many of you have made this in a group which is the best way to make it. All of us at Country Threads got together and made blocks and then traded.
9. Our quilts weren’t identical but resembled each other and when we hung them in our market booth I will never forget Virginia Robertson saying, ” I’m always glad when old dogs can teach new tricks!” Ha!
Connie and I are looking forward to making Bullseye blocks again. It’s the most laid back, forgiving and addicting quilt I’ve ever made.
In our next post I’ll tell you how this block came about. If I stop and take pictures now in the middle of the post, it’s likely to crash.
Here was the game happening this morning between Heidi and Ernie.
Ernie reaches that big paw under the door so Heidi will try to get him – Heidi got bored quickly.
Cantata happened last night – the name of it was I Love To Tell the Story. Do you know that old hymn? It went so well – not a mistake that I can think of. We had a big crowd – because it was around 30 degrees making it easy to get out at night. We’ve had snowstorms, bitter cold on many dates. One year we finally got to perform it in January! That was not very fun. That’s another one in the books!
I’ll take any questions you have about Bullseye quilt along!
