Odette Schedule


This week we are working on Blocks 19 and 20.  Let's go!



Odette Block 19





Download the templates for Block 19 HERE- PART 1 and HERE- PART 2.  When you print the templates, make sure there is no scaling and that the 1" test blog actually measures 1".

If this block is too challenging, feel free to substitute any other 12" finished block!


From various colors of the leftover fabric, cut:
     -4 of each of the following templates- 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16

From the White Background, cut:
     -4- A templates
     -4- B templates
     -1- C templates


1.  Lay the templates 1-16 out as shown below with the 4 of each template under the template itself to keep them organized.



2.  Sew together templates 1 through 9 to make the top arc.  And, then sew together templates 10 through 16 to make the bottom arc.  Repeat to make a total of 4 of each arc.  In the picture below, template A is shown in between the top arc and the bottom arc.




3.  Sew the bottom arc to template A.  Repeat to make a total of 4 pieces.



4.  Sew the top arc onto the bottom arc piece.  Repeat to make a total of 4 pieces.





5.  Layout the block as shown below.



6.  Sew template B to one side of the arc.  Measure 3/8" in from the edge and mark a small line.


Line up template B at the 3/8" line you just drew.


Sew template B onto each of the arcs, making sure to start sewing at the 3/8" mark.



7.  Sew template C to each of the arcs.  To do this, match the edge of template C just a touch beyond the outer piece of the arc as shown below.



 When you sew these pieces together, the template As won't touch in the middle.  They will be close but not touching.  This is supposed to happen and these open edges will get lost in the seam allowance when sewing the block into the quilt.


8.  If needed, trim your block to measure 12 1/2" x 12 1/2".



Make 1 block, 12 1/2" x 12 1/2", including the seam allowance



Odette Block 20





From the Cream Floral, cut:
     -2- 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" pieces

From the Yellow, cut:
     -2- 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" pieces

From the Turquoise, cut:
     -2- 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" pieces

From the Navy, cut:
     -2- 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" pieces

From the White Background, cut:
     -16- 3 1/2" squares

1.  Use 1- 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" piece (any one) and 2- 3 1/2" white squares to make one stitch and flip flying geese unit.  The flying geese unit should measure 3 1/2" x 6 1/2", including the seam allowances.  Repeat with the remaining pieces to make a total of 8 flying geese.





                                                  Make 8 flying geese total (2 of each color), 
                                             3 1/2" x 6 1/2", including the seam allowance


2.  Lay the block pieces out as shown in the block picture below and sew the block together.

Make 1 block, 12 1/2" x 12 1/2", including the seam allowance


These are the last two blocks in the QAL!  Next week we will work on assembly!  Let me know if you have any other questions!


Talk to you soon,


Jessica
