I've been quietly working on this pdf pattern for a few months now. I did a tutorial for this block two years ago and finally decided to turn it into a pattern. It's a simple block that's been around for a long time, but hopefully this pattern gives you ideas how to use it in different ways. These blocks are not paper pieced as other similar tutorials I've seen. Also, there is fairly minimal fabric waste when constructing the blocks. To make these blocks you will need a 6 1/2" square ruler for the smaller blocks and a 9 1/2" square ruler for the large block.
This pattern grew from just one pattern into four unique quilt patterns, several with multiple sizes. I kept coming up with ideas to use this simple, traditional block in lots of different designs. I finally made myself stop making quilts and just write the pattern. It finished up at 22 pages! I had a lot of fun putting together so many ideas for this pattern. Although this project was a lot of work, I've decided to keep the price at $8 like my other pattern. I have no intention of writing another pattern that is this extensive or that has as many design ideas, but I really enjoyed the process of creating this one. I also added five different sketch sheets at the end to allow you the opportunity to color and create your own unique layouts and designs. I hope you enjoy all the extras!
Through the week, I'll share individual posts on each quilt in the booklet, but here is a quick look at what's included:
