Kansas City Star BOM #9

First off I would like to apologize for the down website on Sunday, we were trying to get it fixed as soon as possible.  We came back up first thing the web service opened this morning mountain time.  We now have the emergency of hours number so we have the problem again we can get it fixed immediately.

Yesterday, was a busy day of quilting and sewing.  I caught up on my latest Kansas City Star Block of the Month and Started quilting a string quilt for my mother-in-law. 

The latest block was Month 9 - "Pin Wheels" which was first published in the Kansas City Star Newspaper in 1930. 

KC Star Block #9
Using 4 different fabrics cut  2 7/8" squares and 4 1/2".  On the light block draw diagonally lines  on the wrong side on the 2 7/8".  Then combining them with the green and brown fabric and sewing 1/4" on each side of the diagonal line.
KC Star Block #9Then cut apart on the marked line and press to the dark side.  Square up to a 2 1/2" x 2 1/2".  Making 16 half square triangles (hst) of the green and 4 brown half square triangles.
KC Star Block #9Once all the half square triangles are made layout the squares this way to make the pinwheels.  Assemble the units, combining the units by sewing laying the right on the left side unit. Press the top half units to the right and the bottom units to the left.  When all the top units and the bottom units are assembled sew the the top to the bottom and press to the bottom.  Making 4 units of the green.

Kansas City Star BOM #8

Yesterday,  I decided to get the first one of the two Blocks of the Month that needed to be caught up on done.  The block I worked on was the Kansas City Star Block 8 "The Rolling Stone".  This block was first printed in the Kansas City Start 1936. 

KC Star Block #8
The Block starts with cutting 4 1/2" squares, 2 1/2" squares and 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles out of four different fabrics.

KC Star Block #8
Next, using the 4 1/2" square tan fabric, 2 1/2" red fabrics, and 2 1/2" blue fabrics you make the corner block units.  Marking the center with a diagonal line down the center of the 2 1/2" blocks.  After you have marked all the 2 1/2" blocks you will then take the 4 red - 2 1/2" block and sew them on the top left corner of each of the 4 1/2" blocks using the diagonal line as a stitch line. 

KC Star Block #8
Then trim the corner back to 1/4" away from the seam and press open.

KC Star Block #8Repeat on the opposite corner with the 2 1/2" blue square.

Then follow with the remaining red 2 1/2" blocks to finish the corners all the way around.

KC Star Block #8
Since the corner units are now done now is to make the outer in between block units.  These are fairly easy by just joining the tan and blue 2 1/2" x 4 1/2" rectangles together and then pressing the seam to the dark.


KC Star Block #8
Now it is time to layout the units to join them together to finish the block.

KC Star Block #8

Sew all the rows individually and you will join them together.

KC Star Block #8
The Finished unit! Now the 8th block of the 12 is done.  These are so much fun.

KC Star Block #8
Have a great Weekend,
