Originally I thought I'd cut up the 10" squares into charms and make a basic charm quilt. Then I realized there's a striped print in this line, and I've been meaning to remake Sunset Surprise in another palate: I can run a striped print through my charm quilt and get the same effect, wouldn't that be cute?
And of course, after a little more thinking, I realized I if I was bisecting half my block with stripes anyway, it was possible to get bigger blocks out of my ten-inch stacker as follows:
|Cutting guide for Trick or Treat assuming 1-1/4" stripes. Yes, I figured this out myself. And yes, this kind of quilt geekery makes me happy|
I'll admit I did cheat and use backing fabric for the cornerstones instead though, so they would also look like one continuous block.
Making those blocks provided a delightful diversion from Blanket Stitching 'til forever last weekend, and this weekend it made up into this:
Pieced dimensions are about 42 x 48. I still need to piece the backing. Then it's cross my fingers and hope for some FMQ inspiration!
