Today is the 23rd day of
30 Quilt Blocks in 30 Days.

A blog hop and quilt along.
Every day in April there will be one super simple quilt block tutorial for the quilt along here
one designer showing a project with that block on their blog.

30 days of bloggers

30 quilt blocks.

Today's block is a fun one!

Block 23 - Opposites Attract

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

Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 6" -  2 white / 2 purple
Cut 4 rectangles 3" x 5 1/2" -  2 white / 2 purple

Stitch the 3" x 6" rectangles together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Next cut the sewn unit in half lengthwise to make two 3" x 10 1/2" units.

Flip one strip over and to the other side of the group of 3" x 5 1/2" rectangles.

Stitch them together as laid out with 1/4" seams.
Stitch the rectangles in the middle together first,
then stitch the 3 units together.

So many designs so little time...

This is a great pattern too. This would be a really fun quilt to do using scraps of different darks and lights.
