In that post I proposed a quick-and-easy swap of appliquéd donkeys to kind of reflect the excitement of the 57 decorated donkeys that have been placed throughout the City of Brotherly (and Sisterly) Love.
Now I've got my donkeys and a couple of other blocks on the wall and have begun putting them together. Then I noticed that Hillary's logo just happened to be a quilt block (how ingenious of her!) and decided to include one in my project. My first rotary-cut attempt was unsuccessful and I realized that the way to accuracy was -- gasp -- paper piecing! So here's my finished block. Please don't ask for a template! I made one and used it and it's gone.
But my clever and generous friend Liza caught wind of what I was up to and since she's a fellow cat-washer, she quickly and easily figured out how to rotary cut the pieces needed for the logo. And she's asked people to share her instructions and make those blocks! I'm thinking they'd make rather nifty mug rugs and -- when things settle down just a bit -- I'm going to make a few to bestow as Gifts For No Occasion.
Now, I don't know what your mug rug situation is. But chances are, I think, reasonably good that you could use one right about now. Y'know, in celebration of that broken glass ceiling (and now thinking that my other friend Ruth will probably grab the good old Broken Dishes block and refashion it into Broken Ceiling -- right, Ruth?), here's a picture of Liza's creation and her very, very
Hillary Logo Block
OK, Here ya go for rotary cutting:
Blue -- Cut 2 squares 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, Cut one square 3 7/8 x 3 7/8 and bisect corner to corner.
Red -- Cut 2 squares 3 1/2 x 3 1/2, cut 1 triangle 5 1/8 from base to tip and 10 1/4 long. Cut at 45 degrees from end to tip both ways.
White -- Cut 2 squares 3 1/2 x 3 1/2. Cut two odd ball pieces 2" wide x 5 3/8 long and lop off a 45 degree angle at one end.
OR, if you wish to make the arrow in two pieces, cut the red rectangle 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" Feel free to distribute the pattern.
And I'll be sharing that Broken Ceiling block as soon as Ruth come through with it!
