Third Wednesday of November: SOW A LONG blocks

Are you ready for three more blocks to add to your quilt?  We are almost at the end:  6 more after this installment and then you get to figure out how you're going to set all these darling 6" blocks.  Mine are still stuffed into a large zip lock baggie!! 

1.  LEAF BLOCK

Background:   Cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
                    cut (4) 1-1/2" squares
Medium:        cut (4) 1-1/2" squares
Center (Dark) cut (1) 2-1/2" square
dark 2:          cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles (my reds)

You also need 4 flying geese, 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" unf, 1x2 fin.




2. STREAK OF LIGHTNING

This block is totally scrappy:
Background:  cut (7) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
                   cut (3) 1-1/2" squares
Blues:          cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
                  cut (1) 1-1/2" square
Reds:          cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
                  cut (2) 1-1/2" squares




3.  DOUBLE X:

Background:  cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles
Dark:           cut (4) 1-1/2" x 2-1/2" rectangles (my stripe fabric)

Center:         cut (1) 2-1/2" square

Corner:
You are making 12 hsts in total, 1-1/2" unf, 1" fin.
AND cut (4) dark 1-1/2" squares (my brown)



This is one of my favorite blocks; I never play with stripes so this was fun.

Love to you all,
Randy
