President's Block


 

THANK YOU BLOCK FOR KATHY PORTER
It is tradition that members of the Utah Quilt Guild make a signature block to thank our past-president for her 3 years of service to the Guild. Please make a block for Kathy Porter, sign it and turn it into your area rep or mail it to Nancy Henderson, 4956 Holt Circle, Taylorsville, UT 84129.
You will need two fabrics to make this block, a white that can either be a solid or tone on tone (no creams please) and a bright fabric.
From the white fabric, you will cut one strip that measures
2” x 4”. From the bright fabric, you will cut two strips that measure 2” x 4” and two strips that measure 2” x 5”.
Using your 3 – 2” x 4” strips, place one bright strip right sides together with the white strip and sew along the long edge. Repeat by placing the other bright strip along the other long edge of the white strip and sew. Press with the seams towards the bright fabrics. Sew the 2” x 5” strips on either end of your 3-strip set and again press your seams towards the bright fabric. Sign your name on the white strip using a Pigma pen. The unfinished size of this block should be 5”x 7”.
