I think we’ll change Friday Finds to Block Friday for awhile. Here’s Block 2.

For His Glory – Block 2
2″ x 2″
A – 1 @ 1 7/8″ x 1 7/8″ – cut in half diagonally
B – 3 @ 1 3/8″ x 3/8″ – cut in half diagonally
C – 4 @ 1″ x 1″
D – 5 @ 1 3/8″ x 3/8″ – cut in half diagonally

The words I traced from a paper taped to the back. The font is Courier New 18 pt. The edge of the letters are right at the edge of the 1/4″ seam allowance. The pen used is a Zig with pigment ink that’s waterproof and fade proof, size .01. Not the greatest tracing job but it’ll get better.

You can see the muslin added to make the block 14  1/2″ and you may notice the first two blocks alternate with the seams going horizontal in one and vertical in the other. I’m going to continue to do that so when sewing them all together the seams won’t hit each other but the words will all be right side up. Make sense? I’ve also found it easier to add a little more muslin than needed and then trim it down to 14  1/2″, fewer wavy edges that way. Here’s Block 1 again with the words.

Have a nice weekend.
