So, if you’re ready here’s our first Saturday Sewing Special. We’re starting with Clay’s Choice. This is one of our all-time favourite blocks – very straightforward piecing, only two shapes to measure and cut plus lots of possibilities for interesting fabric/colour placement. Click here for a printable set of instructions to make a 12 inch block together with suggestions for several different quilt layouts.
- Clay’s Choice is a simple four-patch block – that is, it is made up from four (or in this case 16) smaller units.
- It is best made to finish at a size that is a multiple of 4 – i.e. 8inches or 12inches etc.
- You will need a minimum of three fabrics including a background.
You’ll find lots of greyscale quilt layouts included with the printable instructions – here (courtesy of that magical EQ7 quilt design program) are just 3 very simple quilt layouts featuring this block
