    Needing help

    These pieces make a 12 square
    (6)..2.5x4.5
    (4)..2.5x6.5
    (2)..2.5x8.5
    (1)..4.5 square
    I printed the measurements without doing a diagram, figuring I would remember ?.
    I cannot figure out the placement now...thanks to anyone who can .

    I played in EQ7 and drew this. It would help a lot if I knew what colors the pieces were. As you can see, I just guessed. You would sew it in 3 parts. The top and bottom rows as two pieces together, then make the center row by sewing the 2 6 inch strips together twice. Then add a 2x4 inch strip to one end of each. Then sew the a 2x4 inch strip on either side of the 4 inch square. Then sew the 3 parts together, following the picture. Those are finished sizes for the strips. What type of blocks do you normally like?

    Cute block, very creative.
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    It did come from ‘quiltville’ but I could not find it again when I needed it.

    I think it is called Crayon Box.
    I arise in the morning torn between a desire to improve the world and a desire to enjoy the world. This makes it difficult to plan the day.

    Great block, especially since you're using scraps!
