I needed to make 44 – 16 patch blocks to make a border on a quilt. I’d made more than half of them when I pulled the quilt out and realised I’d been making the blocks with 2″ squares when quilt was based on 2.5″ squares. That was a fun moment – NOT. Out came the 2.5″ square bin and I had the opportunity to start back at square one. Some swearing
may have occurred. The right blocks have now all finally been made and are waiting for me to finish off that quilt
However, rather than focus on that quilt I’ve been fixated on the 6 inch – 16 patch blocks that I made by accident. What to do with them?
I searched different settings for the blocks and my friend Bonnie suggested this one after I suggested a much more elaborate one what would have taken much more effort and time. So, I cut out sashing and made some four patches and came up with setting that looked like this.
I liked it!
So I started sewing and eventually this is quilt top that I ended up with:
I’m really pleased with how this turned out! I see some wavy quilting to soften the straight lines but other than that I haven’t thought to much yet about how to finish it off.
