April is nearly here

I've spent today bundling up my envelopes of fabric to send out to you all and Hooray, i've discovered the designer of my quilt. Pat Sloan designed this quilt called "Traffic Jam" and has given the pattern away on her website so it's all ok to ask you to make it for me.
Here are the instructions for 1 block:
1: sew four of the 2.5 inch squares together until you have 5 four patch blocks measuring 4.5 inches square
2: Then sew the yellow squares and 4 patch blocks together as shown.
3: Note the centre row is made of three 4 patch blocks and the top and bottom rows have a yellow corner.
4: Da dah, now do it again to make two 12.5 inch blocks.

Have heaps of fun with these blocks adding some of your own red, blue, aqua, pink or green fabrics.

  1. I look forward to making these blocks. It is always fun to make something new. I have never made this block before! It will make a beautiful quilt.

  2. The pattern looks so complex but the block is so simple!!
