Remember last weekend’s project? Some of you made it! I saw pictures. Thanks!
I love taking a single block and playing around with it and coming up with something a bit different. Same block with a bit of chopping and changing:
Or, turn the blocks a different way and get this:
Here’s the block:
To make the block, cut one red (or blue) strip and 2 background strips 3″. Sew them together (ecru/red or blue/ecru). Then add a red 1-1/2″ strip to each side. Press the seam allowances towards the red or blue fabrics. Cut into 4-1/4″ sections.
Sew a 1-1/2″ x 10″ red (or blue) strip to one long edge.
To make the other part of the block, cut two red (or blue) strips and one background strip 3″. Sew them together (red or blue/ecru/red or blue). Then add an ecru 1-1/2″ strip to each side. Press the seam allowances towards the red or blue fabrics. Cut into 4-1/4″ sections.
Sew a 1-1/2″ x 10″ ecru strip to one long end.
Put the two sections together to make the block.
Blocks finish at 9-1/2″ so the same border measurements from last week will produce a 62″ x 81″ top.
Border #1 – Ecru – Cut 1-1/2″
Border #2 – Navy – Cut 2″
Border #3 – Ecru – Cut 2-1/2″
Border #4 – Navy – Cut 3-1/2″.
Please send me a picture or a link to your blog if you make it. Mine is started.
the first one would make me dizzy, but the second one is not bad!
forgot to add, that second one reminds me very much of a half basket weave crochet pattern.
If the different block sets were done either in tone-on-tone Fall colors, or in brights, or even pastells with a solid background, it would be a good scrappy variation.
Lots of great ways to do this one! Nice job, Judy!
I like that top, thanks again for another pattern. I’m glad you made it over the bridge.

You sure do make it hard to keep from starting another project.
I am moving right along on the current one so I will stick to it.

I like that! That would be perfect for my son.
Not sure I like it. I guess it is a little plain for me. But for a guy Perfect.
But I think the pattern would make a great 6-8 inch boarder. I have just the quilt for it.
