Stash Busters Quilt Along Week 20

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.

  4. Hoping to get my last block done SOON... If I use my "sad" blocks I will have thirty blocks. So I just might do that! Look forward to getting this last block done. Thanks Linda for all of your hard work.
