30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 17

With the progression of blocks, this one was a must.
It's really simple, but the color combinations are limitless
and
it can be stitched together with many techniques.


There is always a place for 

Sweet Sixteen

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

Construction method 1:


Cut 16 squares 3" x 3" - eight purple / eight white


Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.



Construction Method 2:

Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 12" - two purple / two white


Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.

Cut this unit in 3" strips.


Rotate every other row.


Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.


Look at this Stash busting quilt.


Add 22 plain blocks to 50 Sweet Sixteen blocks.
In an 8 block by 9 block grid this quilt is 80" x 90".
The blank area could be appliqued or left for lots of quilting fun.

Hi Carol,
I got behind on the blocks this week, but I love this two color, or multi-shade block. So versatile and easy.
