30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days - Block 27

Block 27 is a 2 color block, 
but by changing where the color appears can really change the finished quilt.

Quilt block number 27

Broken Stripes

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

Cut 2 rectangles 4 1/4" x 10 1/2" - white
Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 1 3/4" - 2 blue / 2 white
Cut 2 rectangles 1 3/4" x 5 1/2" - 1 white / 1 blue

Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Stitch the middle rectangles together then sew the top and bottom rectangles to the middle unit.

Put together in a quilt, by rotating, there are a lot of 
Broken Stripes.

By changing one of the large rectangles to color, a whole other look is achieved.

Which on do you like better?

The second design layout looks very dramatic in two colors. Thank you.

Wow I'm really late to your party. Just went through all of the great blocks. I hope now that December is just about over that I can make these blocks in January. Better late than never, right. It is my first goal of the new year.

Hmmm....I think I would prefer the first design with all of that great quilting area.
