Weekend Project 2

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:

QOV1

Or, turn the blocks a different way and get this:

QOV2

Here’s the block:

QOVB1

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.

QOVB2

Sew a 1-1/2″ x 10″ red (or blue) strip to one long edge.

QOVB3

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.

QOVB4

Sew a 1-1/2″ x 10″ ecru strip to one long end.

QOVB5

Put the two sections together to make the block.

QOVB1

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.

    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.

    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.

    Thanks,
