30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 26

Block 26 is another quilt block that changes so much in a quilt with a little color swapping and rotating.


With quilt block #26
you definitely won't be

Catching Z's

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

Cut 4 rectangles 4 1/4" x 51/2" - 2 red / 2 white
Cut 1 square 3" x 3" - red
Cut 2 rectangles 3" x 4 1/4" - white

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

Stitch the rectangles in the middle to the middle square, stitch the upper and lower rectangles together, and lastly stitch the 3 columns together.

When stitched together in a 5 block by 6 block grid and rotating every other block,
the result is a very abstract, and modern quilt.

By changing the colors and using the blocks in the original position
the look is a modern take on tradition.

Catch some Z's while you can.
There are only 4 more blocks before they become a quilt!!

It does have such a modern feel to it - especially the two color design. Looks nice.
