This block is for Nicky in the Sew & Bee Happy bee. She is doing a quilt using quilting words. My word was "QUILT". It was funny, I was looking at my list the other night and I had written "Quilt Block" and I wondered what quilt block I was thinking about. When I looked and saw that my word was Quilt, it made me laugh at myself.
Anyway, Nicky has a mini-tutorial on her blog, but I didn't really follow it. She did say that it was like putting together a log cabin block, so I just kind of ran with that idea. I have to say, my seam ripper and I are much better acquainted now. Since I didn't know what I was doing, it was hard to do it right the first time.
I can see a lot of uses for this block. Wouldn't it be a cute banner for your sewing room? How about a mini quilt, maybe decorated up a little?
Oh, I think I'll be doing this again.
