    another scrappy charity kid's quilt

    I saw a vidseo on Missour Star Quilt Company doing a block she had seen by one of her customers, who saw the block at her LQS, Three Dudes, 3 guys who own a quilting shop here in my home town.
    (well, next town over, I think.) Jennie called and talked to Ray, one of the owners, and she mae a video of a quilt she made, and used a mix of the blocks, but I did a controlled version. If you make two blocks exactly the same, you can make two blocks that are like positive/negative blocks as I show you in the second picture. I used 2-1/2" WOF strips sewn together and cut into 8-1/2" blocks, getting 5 out of a strip set and made two identical blocks from the strip set. (The extra block went into my ophan box) I really love this quilt, but wasn't fond of making it with all that bias.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    great quilt for a little someone
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Very pretty. I tried one of these with a jelly roll and it's a UFO because I wasn't pleased with the result. I'll have to try your more controlled version. Thanks for sharing.
