How to make a Square

We’re about 20 squares short of our next quilt, yep, I need you to make squares for the next quilt.

I figured, since most of us are spending hours, days and weeks (maybe even months) stuck at home you might be asking yourself what you can do to pass the time.

Well, make a square for the next quilt.

Here’s how…

How to make a square – Quilts of Hope
Here are the main points to remember:

  1. Cut a 6″ square
  2. Keep a half inch boundary around the square for trimming and seam allowance
  3. If you can’t think of a phrase to say, add a heart shape instead
  4. Post it to us at Quilts of Hope, 45 West Grange Road, Leeds, LS10 3AP
  5. How many can you make before the self isolation period ends?
