#NGAQB Hash Tag Tutorial

Update: Before you begin this tutorial, ensure your quarter inch seam is accurate. If it is not, your block will be too small. You might also consider sewing with a scant quarter inch seam. A test block is always a mahvelous idea, dahling!

Planted firmly between the cheeky songs of Nicki Minaj’s Anaconda and Jennifer Lopez’s Booty, it looks like 2014 is gonna end up being the year of the ass. It’s a good thing too, because I am behind! I haven’t managed to complete my October or November NGAQB (No Girls Allowed Quilt Bee) blocks, and they are such mahvelous selections. Thankfully, December is all about me–when is it not–and I’ve instructed the guys to make me tone on tone hash tag blocks.

This quilt is going to be a slice of rainbow heaven! I’ll fill you in on all of the details about my design intentions and rationale when the blocks start rolling in, and for now I’ll show you the tutorial I made for the guys. Oh and by the way, Grandma Sparkles always told me not to, but I’ll gladly accept blocks from strangers!

    Just popped back to see how many blocks you've now raised, amazing at 596 on Boxing Day, you're going to be so busy organising these quilts to be made. What a wonderful, wonderful thing to do.

    Ps i loved the quilts at first sight so sent first message. Went back and read story. Well done for getting them out of the cupboard and directing them to a great place. We are seeing more and more women and children being homeless due to DV so i think your choice great. Big Heart in a kind man. P.s we will keep that secret.
