    Rhonda, what is the cutting width for last weeks Kansas Dugout block? The week before we did the 2 1/2 blocks. Maybe I'm just confused, but not sure of the cutting measurements for the width for the middle portion of the Kansas block on week 18. Any info would be appreciated. I really like this weeks block. Very pretty.

    I'd say probably 1 1/4" cut from the seam. It just depends on how much diff you want between the seam of the 4 patch block and the seam of the Kansas dugout block. an inch would get the same design but put just abit more space between the two seams making it show up a bit more.

    thanks FF which way of showing the block do you like better? the way I was doing it with just a pic of the block and a pic of the layout or do you like it broken down more? It would also depend on the level of skill of the quilter looking at it. so it might depend on if the quilter is a beginner or not. which would be more helpful and less confusing for a beginner. this new way was just a thought I wanted to try out and see if it would be a better way to go or not. any input from anyone is more than welcome positive and negative.

    Wow, love all the possibilities. Not sure how I missed this thread but I am going to try to follow along.

    Ronda and Oksewglad, I love your little scrappies. I have scraps all over the place and keep forgetting all that can be done with them.

    Well, both ways of explaining work. I think I prefer having the quarter block and construction shown with the constructed corner layout and completed block following--At least for more complex blocks. This weeks is beautiful. I wish had to more time to make everything!!

    Rhoda, I love your thread. You really had inspired me to make a quilt with all those scraps that are taking over my garage. Is it too late to join this fun group?

    Oh Rhonda, how can you be so cruel? I am trying so hard to finish some of my UFOs. I love scrappy and I love your block. Maybe just a few hours spent with the scrappy club...., darn here I go again.

    I send them out for free if you need one. Just send me your postal address in a pm.

    Week 11 Quilt Block

    This is one of my favorite traditional quilt blocks to work with. the center of this quilt block is called an Anvil. It has been around a long time. I don't always know the names of blocks but this one I do.

    I also don't usually include any borders with my blocks but this one the border strips are part of my block.

    You can piece the blocks for a border strip or you can cut the strips in 2 1/2" blocks to make those.

    If you use a 2 1/2" template you will get a 12 1/2" quilt block unfinished
    I send out free templates so if you need one just let me know.
    Just a thought here - if you use a plain square for the corners instead of an HST you can add the borders and just trim to size. or you can forget the HSTs or plain squares and just use borders all the way around.
