A while back Lori of Humble Quilts had a sew along for an adorable little quilt. She has had several sew along's and you can see some of them here.
|I went so far as to get out my boxes of squares...these are the 2.5"|
|These are the rest that measure under 5"--there's a layer of 1.5"squares in the bottom|
|Well, I never got around to starting Lori's little mystery, but one morning I saw THIS BLOCK on Lori Holt's blog. |
Since I have a plethora of 1.5" squares I decided to try it out with my scraps in a smaller size.
|Yes, that mess above is just these 2 components (x8) laid out on my block board to make one Crossroads block.|
|Using my medium/dark 1.5" squares and 2.5' light squares, my block is half the size of Lori's.|
It finishes at 8"and I think it's pretty cute!
|I cooked up a couple layouts in EQ7 using a straight set (35 blocks) and on point (32 blocks).|
They both finish at just about the same size--I'm leaning toward the straight set on the left.
