I recently taught a class in Oshkosh Wisconsin at their Quilting Expo. The name of the class was, "Do You See What I See?" I asked the group for photos and suggestions for using 5" squares in their quilts.
I wanted to thanks everyone who sent photos. I put together a simple pattern and thought I would share the photos here. It is very effect and very simple. Ignore the white lines between the mock up of the blocks. This was just so I could show how the blocks were put together.
The measurements on the strips are 2" X 5" and 2" X 6 1/2" and the block is a 5" square. The third picture shows the rotation of the blocks. To make the quilt wider, just add more blocks in the same rotation. To make longer, just add more rows.
This is a quick and fun child's quilt. I will add a couple of other pictures, too.
