Yesterday I was making up blocks for Sarah for our Bee Splendid group and I fell in love with the block. It's similar to Jacob's Ladder. Or maybe just a different version of it. I can't keep track of them all. I know I've seen it before but making it and visualizing how the quilt would come together had me sold!
The more I thought about the construction, I realized that it could be made using Moda Charm packs. This was even more exciting because I have 3 Nest Charm packs just begging to be used!! I just had to figure out how to make this pattern using only 3 charm packs.
I started playing around on EQ7 but could only come up with a quilt that was smaller than I wanted or I had to buy more charm packs. These puppies are hard to find.
I decided to change the block just a bit. I changed two solid pieces into half square triangle pieces and the numbers came out perfect!!
Then I got to thinking maybe I could do this in parts, post it here, and see if anyone wanted to make a quilt with me? There are so many layout possibilities that we can all have a different quilt when we're done. Each block is the same, it's just how you position them when you put it together that gives it a different look.
It's an easy block. Basically a 9 patch consisting of half square triangles and 4 patches. Easy peasy!
I'd love for you to join me! I will be doing this in weekly increments, posting on Sundays.
Tomorrow I will post the supplies and fabric requirements and I will also post some of the layouts you can choose from so you can decide if you even like the quilt before you commit. Uh...you wouldn't be committing to me, but to yourself to finish. :)
Here's the block to give you an idea of what I'm babbling about! Hahah!
Check back tomorrow for all the details!! I know you all have charm packs laying around!! They are begging to be used! :D
