Scrappy Sunday – more squares?

Over at the Rural Office the focus is still on squares but there are signs that half square triangles may enter the picture in the near future.  A week before everything came to a halt Barbara had cut a bag of 2 1/2inch squares and we’ve shown some of the blocks that have grown out of that bag in previous posts.  The bag is now greatly diminished but proved a handy starting point to lay out some reference pics for an informal online challenge with a group of indefatigable hand stitching students.

 

Here’s the original greyscale plan for a small (18inches square) quilt top –

And here’s a glimpse of Barbara’s progress so far – just 2 blocks to finish and then choose sashing and borders –

 

 

 

 

A further progress report in a future Scrappy Sunday post – happy stitching!

  1. My 5″ squares are all making the transition to Jewel Box blocks. Two matching blocks and two background blocks = 1 square. Why 5″? More leftover charm pack squares than I know how to use! Am exploring various ways of making the Jewel Box quilt. The first one I made, I had so many leftover, mismatched blocks I made a second quilt.
