30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 2

I'm posting block 2 a little early because tomorrow is a big day here in the Sticks.


Tomorrow is the day to share cookie recipes



There will be a very nice giveaway here in the sticks, 
so come back to check it out!!!!!

On to block #2

In honor of the cookie exchange, I'm calling this one

Double Stuffed

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


Cut 3 strips:

1 for the middle: 5 1/2" x 10 1/2"
2 for top and bottom:  3" x 10 1/2"



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


The second block of the 30 Day Quilt Block Challenge is finished.

Faster than the first?  Maybe, but why not.

You could make a bunch of these blocks by just cutting the strips the width of the fabric then stitching the strips together. 
Three or four (depending on the width of the fabric) 10 1/2" x 10 1/2" blocks could be cut out of a strip set.

Then you could make a super fast quilt.

Check out how great this block would be in a 4 x 4 grid with 3" borders.


Who says blocks need to be complicated?
Not me...

I love seeing what a bigger quilt looks like using the design.
