This is one of the blocks for the month of August. Please contact Sherron or Shantelle directly with questions concerning the blocks you are making them this month.
Also, remember to prepare your block instructions and give it to Cat to distribute. It would be great if you could make up a block of your own pattern to show us at guild meeting and to be posted here when it is your turn.

Cathy had a great example at our August guild meeting of a quilt you can make using 8 fat quarters - a Fat Quarter Tuesday Quilt!
You need 6 fat quarters for the center and 2 fat quarters for the binding. Cathy did hers on the bias. She said if you put 4 inch borders on it you need to buy 2 and 1/4 yards for the borders and backing, plus an extra 1/4 yard of contrasting fabric to add to the backing because the width of the fabric comes up a little short. She likes contrasting fabric on the back because she adds that 1/4 yard down the center for a little more pizazz! You can do whatever you want, if you want it to be the same continuous color, buy 2 1/2 yards for the border and backing.
Thanks Cathy for a super idea!

If you remember anything in particular about some of these quilts, please be sure to comment so the rest of us can remember her tricks and tips and how inspired she made us feel.
The trees were embellished with buttons for leaves!
