Yesterday I was pulling strips from my scrap container to make string blocks for the Hurricane Michael String Quilt Drive hosted by That Fabric Feeling, and found a bundle of red and green Riley Blake Fat Quarters inside — what a joy 🙂
While making the string blocks I was dreaming of what to make with my new found goodies. After debating with myself I chose a modern cross quilt block. Although the prints in the fabric aren’t “Christmas” the colors most definitely are, so the Greek cross quilt block seemed appropriate.
I love big and easy quilt blocks – this block is 15 x 15 inches. No pattern I sketched the block out myself.
The bundle included 12 fat quarters which will make a decent lap throw.
My layout twelve blocks later :
This was my first attempt at working with equilateral triangles. I’m hoping to make a wall hanging with one star block.
Until next time – Happy Sewing!
PS — I made 10 string blocks for the Hurricane Michael String Quilt Drive and got them in the mail yesterday! Please visit the link here if you would like to help out!
