|A little tail action rearranged some blocks during our photo session :)|
I was able to do a little machine sewing this weekend and I was even able to finish the top for this charity quilt. It's brighter than I had first imagined but I really like the look and this block is super simple.
Midgie offering her stamp of approval – the quilt is for the New Start Kitty Shelter after all!!
I had seen another version online which I modified because I wanted a smaller quilt and only had 4 FQ of the floral fabrics to work with. Essentially I cut 5" squares and surrounded them with 1.5" strips cut 5" and 7" long to attach courthouse steps style. Two blocks were then stacked right sides together and 2 parallel seams were sewn diagonally so that they could be cut into half-square-triangles. Press them open, lay them out and sew them back together. Easy. Peasy.
