    Some may know me and some may not. I used to post my quilt block patterns that I designed on a sampler thread and then I did a second sampler after that.

    Most of them use 3- 5 colors and if you want to do a controlled scrappy you can mix up the color ways by using several reds or several diff blues etc.

    I generally design using a 6 x 6 grid that means 6 rows of 6 blocks per row.
    You do have to have a template to make them. I send out a free template if you need one. No postage needed
    You can use my designs to make a 12 1/2" quilt block by using a 2 1/2" template.
    or you can use a 1 1/2" template and make it a 6 1/2" quilt block

    My quilt blocks are made using my shortcut blocks. but my shortcut methods are easy to do.

    You can check out my stuff here if you are interested.

    I do also have some 3 x 3 as in a shoofly or 9 patch type block

    I would be happy to post my current BOM here if anyone is interested. I used to post them on QB but felt like noone was interested so I quit. I would do them here but I need to know if anyone is following along.

    Okay here are a few of my favorite quilt blocks I designed. They look a lot more difficult to do but once you know the easy steps to make the shortcuts it isn't hard at all.

    Sorry this top one is bigger than I realized.
    In the layout you can see the individual blocks.
    the first one is made with HSTs. Check out my HST method

    It is possible to make the last block as a 6 inch version? I did buy a small ruler 1 1/2 inches by 6 inches. would that work?

    If you cut two sides at a time it might work. but I think you'd have better accuracy with my template. I have your address if you want a template.

    to answer your question if you use a 1 1/2" template and make sure your seam allowances are 1/4" you should have a 6 1/2" quilt block

    Rhonda, I just want to say thank you for being so generous to all of us here by sending us templates.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    You're welcome lynnie but my ulterior motive is to get people to try my methods LOL

    Plus you can't find these small tiny templates on the market.

    I've been reading through the earlier pages -- tons of info! But now I realize that I can't get through them all, so I've stopped at page 90. Now I will just move forward. It feels good to let the other 110 pages go ... I guess I'm just too OCD to have stopped sooner!

    Thanks it's really just a simple block and probably is out there somewhere in cyberland. but this one is mine. I won't claim to have invented it tho as I really don't know if it's been done before. but probably has.

    You can take most any of my quilt blocks and turn them into scrappy but doing what I did with this one.

    Here are some things I've made in the past The red one is all diff reds.
    I sold my stuff to a gift shop in Kalona Iowa for 12 yrs. My hotpads were my best seller. So I made aLOT of them. The owner preferred the scrappy look so I did alot of scrappy stuff for her in 12 yrs.
