Scrappy Sunday – EQ Doodles

The block we’ve chosen for our February Doodles is Red Cross. Over on the Doodles page you will find some monochrome ideas for colourings and quilts designs showing how moving the light, medium and dark fabrics around can change the look of the block and the quilt. But it is Scrappy Sunday today so will this block work with scraps?

This is how the block could look with just one colour – blue

But you could use your blue and green scraps –

Or multi colours – note that the light rectangles are different fabrics too (honest!)

Or you may prefer to make the rectangles all the same colour and perhaps try a dark colour there and lighter colours in some of the triangles –

But what about the quilts? A scrappy straight set with light rectangles could look like this

Or we could add light triangles around those centre squares and the outer edges of the blocks –

You can download a quilt to colour here. And if you want to make the block (or quilt) then here is where you can download the rotary cutting instructions for a 10 inch block.
