I was running out of ideas for simpler blocks.
Back to Pinterest. I had pinned a block that I wanted to try. It looked simple. I drafted it into EQ to get the size I needed.
I made one block and discovered I could get one block out of 4” of two different fabrics. So I made a few of these – they were fast, simple, and looked great.
I think that I could have made the rest of them like this… but it felt like “cheating” to me by making multiples of one block. Don’t ask me what I was thinking. I only made five total.
Another pinterest pinned block I drafted:
I loved doing this one. The problem with this one was I didn’t have a lot of fabrics that coordinated 5 different prints/solids. I would have made more of these.
Another pinterest pinned block I did was this one:
I drafted it at 7” because I thought it would be easier than figuring out what would fit a 12” block. I added borders and called it done. I would have made more of these, but again, I didn’t have the fabrics in three values of a color.
This brings my total up to 43. 7 more to get to 50. I was seriously running out of ideas for blocks…
