Looking for more Oh Fudge ideas?
Debby Kratovil has a sweet project for you! Here she is!
Chocolate is the way to THIS woman's heart! Let me tell you why this Oh Fudge Collection by Maria Kalinowski for Kanvas is better than flowers (we are close to Valentine's Day, you know).
|Stack of 10" Oh Fudge squares - yum, yum!|
|Group of red fabrics from a variety of Benartex collections|
|Red letters mixed up; can you figure out what I'm trying to say?|
Let's see where I went with this awesome Oh Fudge fabric. The blocks are rectangles (don't ask me why), finishing to 5" x 7".
I cut strips of 6 fabrics, 7" x 10".
|6 yummy squares of chocolate delights|
I used my own Arrowheads Template for half-rectangles. This is the same angle as used in the Tri-Recs Tool set (my EZ Wrights by Darlene Zimmerman). You probably have one of those in your sewing room! There is a link for a pdf pattern with the correct angle on the Fowl Play post, but it's not quite tall enough. Just extend the angled side up the 7" height. Or go look for your Tri-Recs tool in your sewing room!
|7" x 10" strips cut using my version of a Tri-Recs tool ( the Recs one)|
|Four half-rectangle triangles cut|
|Remaining letters with an extra heart|
|Aligning the triangles for a RIGHT tilt|
|Aligning triangles for a left tilt|
Here they are sewn.
|Triangles sewn; now ready for trimming|
|Trim, leaving 1/4" seam around all sides|
I put them all together but didn't have the perfect sashing. But what do you think so far? Pretty sweet, wouldn't you say?
Find the tutorial that has a pdf for the letters I used here.
Head over to Debby's blog for a peek at the LOVE quilt she made with the remaining letters and a random collection of Benartex red prints, plus a chance to enter a giveaway for a stack of 10" Oh Fudge squares.
