Choose between two charming blocks for a quilt or other projects. They’re both great for using up scraps and other goodies in your stash, and will be wonderful in many color themes.

The gray sashing makes the colors glow in the first block (below). It’s easy to imagine the second block in gray as well. Notice how it’s basically the reverse of the first one.

Both blocks were used in a beautiful runner made by the designer. This is just one idea for putting the blocks to good use. Learn more about how it was made here.

The following table topper, from Perfectly Pasch Gifts, is a lovely adaptation of the first block. It’s twice the size of the original block. Calculate cutting sizes by removing the seam allowances from the original measurements (1/2″). Double the remainder and add the seam allowances back. Construct the block according to the instructions, then remove a slice from each corner.

It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources.
