Richmond is pieced per the directions on page 76 and template on page 120 OR Paper Pieced using the Supplemental Packet offered at Patched Works.
Diane says: If you have a ruler that measures in 1/16ths you can strip piece the little 4 patches by cutting 1-3/16th inch strips. If you don’t, then it’s probably best that you just use the templates. When adding the “B” triangles to the 4-patches, align the triangle so that the tip of the triangle is in line with the center stitched line of the 4-patch.
Stephanie – Richmond Reds by Barbara Brackman
Stephanie says: I recently taught a session of our “Back in Time” fabric club and made two Richmond blocks out of the Richmond Reds fabric line. Barbara Brackman has two very interesting blog posts about the history of the Richmond block.
Julie: Elm Creek Quilts; The Giving Quilt This block was put together by PW Customer Nancy A.
Nancy A says: There aren’t any short cuts – using the template D makes for accurate piecing.
