30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 16

Block 16 is either an ascending group of squares or  adescending group of squares.
It's all in how you place the finished block.

It can go up or down
so we'll call it


Size Unfinished: 10 1/2" x 10 1/2"
Finished Size: 10 x 10"

Cut 8 squares 3" x 3" - four red / four white

Cut 2 squares 5 1/2" x 51/2" -  white

Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Stitch the 2 sets of small squares together first (4 patch).
Then stitch those two units to the large squares forming two columns.
Stitch the columns together.

Make a Bounce quilt with 30 blocks.  Just rotate every other one.

Hope you are having fun!

I love this one in a big quilt and those fabrics are so fun!

Really like that pixel-ish wave that layout creates.

Have a new great grandson coming in July, and I love the idea of using Minkie for the backing.

Does this block have a name, I am no good at half square triangles and I was thinking this would make a beautiful red white and blue quilt.
