Positive Space QAL – Making Column Bs

We’re trucking right along!  Making the Column As was a huge step.  The As gave us the horizontal bars for our plus-signs, but now we need the vertical bars! Column Bs come together MUCH faster using convenient strip piecing!

The pattern will give you the measurements needed for these strips, and tell you how many columns you’ll need to make depending on the size of your finished quilt.  I’m working on a Queen Sized blanket, so the pictures here reflect that assembly.

You’ll sew these strips together, alternating between plus fabric and background fabric.

Queen-Sized Instructions.

Then you slicey slice!

Vertical Bar Units! (Queen)

To a couple of these pieces you’ll add the end-cap pieces.  Then sewing together a couple of these skinny strips, you’ll get the Column B pieces!  Ta Da!  I like to press towards the plus fabric.

Please post pictures to the flickr group – or link to your blog in the comments – so I can OOO and AHHH over your beautiful projects!
All the best!
