This is an easy pattern, and I would recommend it, even though I changed a few things, like the size, plus I used my Easy Angle ruler to make the half square triangles. The blocks finish at 18 in. square, and they use up lots of scraps. What looks like sashing here is actually part of the block. There are 14 rectangles surrounding the center section. It's a great pattern for using up a wide variety of scraps.
Here's the book the pattern came from: Scrap-Basket Beauties, by Kim Brackett.
This quilt will be mailed to my sister in Florida. She has had some health concerns in the last several years. I hope the quilt will be a cheerful reminder that we care about her.
Here's why I didn't post last week:
The ladies above are examining a new find by one of our members. From left to right, they are Maribeth, Bonnie, Laurie, Carol, Pat, and Nancy.
Sue Reich shared her quilts with us, not only in slides but "in person".
Through my volunteer work with quilt documentation, I know the importance of signing and dating my quilts. But I can't say I always follow through! Being at this retreat reminded me to label my quilts.
We also learned about World War I and World War II quilts at the retreat. I'll write more about that in the coming weeks.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom this week at Finish It Up Friday.
I wish good and happy sewing for you this week!
