This block was a fast and fun one to make! It was also the first time I used a #6 Accuquilt die to cut units. Don’t you love the square on point? It was easy to figure out which die to use. When you look at this block, it is essentially a 9 patch block.
Grids…..let’s consider them for a moment or two. When I consider translating a quilt pattern from the original pattern and instructions for AccuQuilt or my specialty rulers---Half Square Triangle and Quarter Square Triangle Ruler---I consider how the block is divided. At this point, it does not matter what size the block is or what size the pieces are, what matters is how the block is divided into segments. If you look closely at the block above, this block is a 4 x 4 grid.
The Big Reveal and other matters…..
Christmas and New Years came and went so fast…..as always I’m an early bird and waiting for the clue is a challenge for me...I’m with the Aussie’s, feels like I have been waiting all day to begin the fun.
