This is another block that is perfect to make from 6" strips of fabric like the Tonga Treat 6 Packs.
If you would like to win a pack you still have a few days to enter over here.
This block reminds me of the wrapped chocolate bon bons we used to buy my Grandpa when we used to go visit him. We used to have to sneak them into the house past my Nan, who always knew what we were doing, and then he would share them with us
To make a half block you will need:
1 printed square 6" x 6"
1 printed rectangle 6" x 3 1/4"
4 white squares 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Trim, leaving a 1/4" seam allowance.
To make a whole block you will need:
1 printed rectangle 6" x 11 1/2"
2 printed rectangles 6" x 3 1/4"
8 white squares 3 1/4" x 3 1/4"
Make 2 flying geese units with the small rectangles as above and add triangle corners to each end of the larger rectangle.
Sew the two half blocks together and press the seams open. Sew a whole block to the top and one to the bottom. Press the seams open.
Cut two backing pieces 17" x 11 1/2"" and 2 binding pieces 17" x 2".Fold the binding pieces in half and press. Open them out and then press either side into the middle as shown.
It's a little tricky to sew with my finger all bandaged up so I spent last night making quilts on Electric Quilt. I'd love to see the Bon Bon block as a quilt.
