We made it!!!!! The last of our 20 blocks for the Quilt Along. Are you up to date? LOL.
This is my version of a modified log cabin block.
Start with a 2 1/2" square. From 1 1/2" wide scraps you will need one 2 1/2" strip, two 3 1/2" strips, two 4 1/2" strips, two 5 1/2" strips and one 6 1/2" strip. This is the amount needed for each quarter of the block. I know some of you are down to your last few scraps, so I thought this was a great way to use up those last little bits. I did use a contrasting light colour for the last two strips so that there was a secondary design within the block.
Sew the strips in the order shown, carrying on till all are added. Make three more 6 1/2" blocks.
Plan your lay out and sew together.
This would be a really fun block to play with in a quilt.
Now for the last prize for the quilt along.
An autographed copy of "New York Beauty Diversified." I am going to draw for this on February 15th so that everyone has a chance to get their blocks done, and hopefully a few finished tops will be posted. I hope to have my three tops finished shortly and will post pics to give you a few ideas for settings.
