November Queen Bee Block - Bonnie

Bonnie is our lucky Queen Bee this month.  She came up with a great idea of creating a Quilt of Valor with her blocks.  She handed out at the meeting instructions and fabrics to start us all off with.

What we will be making is a string quilt block which is foundation pieced to a piece of muslin.

Place white string face up diagonally across the the muslin.
Add a red strip right side down on top of white strip.  Sew along one edge and pres flat.  Continue adding red to that side until you cover the square.
Lay a blue strip on top of the white strip.  Sew along edge and press flat.  Continue the same with the blue side.

Turn block over and trim to 6.5" square.
