    QB Block-of-the-Month, September 2013 - 54/40 or Fight - Photos

    Here's my rendition. This block works nicely when paired with a different 9-patch block - especially a second star block.

    The corner patches make a diagonal frame for the second block.

    In this quilt, I paired the 54/40 or Fight with the Ohio Star.
    (no - not today. i confess to having made this a few years ago for a friend. LOL)

    Very nice, one has to look real hard to see the 54/40 or fight block. It is lost in the overall design.

    Nice block Patrice. I don't know why I am so taken with 4-patches, but I love them; 9-patches too. They are just so quilty. I absolutely love that quilt.

    Triangles, ARG!

    Gosh, I should have stayed awake in geometry class. I do not do well with triangles. ;-) Thankfully, this block didn't turn out as crooked as it looks here. It only has one pin holding it. And please ignore the stray threads. BTW, that is dark turquoise, though it looks very blue.

    Rural01. Really like the yellow checks. Nice job and very good fabric choices

    Sept BOM

    Here is my Sept. 54-40 block. I love this block and have done it is so many different colors they all look so different. This one is to add to my black/white/yellow/green quilt. I know the white and yellow don't pop like they should, but the block goes perfect with the rest of my blocks. And I decided to fussy cut the center, although I wish the flower would have been a bit smaller.

    This block was pretty easy but it still took me half a day. I had to rip and sew over and over to try and get the seams to line up. I even had to sew some seams 1/8" to make it happen.

    It's really interesting to see what everyone is doing with their colour placements on the 4 patches. Just looked at the one on quilterscache and she uses the placement that I thought was more traditional. I see some of you have your 4 patches all going one way and others have switched them out. Still out camping so won't be making mine for awhile yet, looking forward to some more pictures, thanks for posting them.

    I just noticed I sewed one corner in the wrong direction. OOPs. I should have known I wasn't done yet! It's funny, I knew something was "off" but couldn't tell what. I spent so much time on this block and now it's coming back out of the cupboard, lol!
