Last week I posted a picture of a scrap quilt I finished. The blocks in that quilt are made from eight 2-1/2” x 4-1/2” bricks—half in one fabric and half in another. The first time I made this quilt I used lots of cream, light beige, tans and browns so I called the quilt Half and Half. There probably is another name for this block but I don’t know what it is so I’ve continued calling it Half and Half.
I came across a fat quarter pack from a Fig Tree Quilts line called A Day in the Country and thought those fabrics would work well for this quilt so I made another one. Since I didn’t have yardage of anything from this line I made an easy piano key border. That worked out pretty well. I used almost every thread of 16 fat quarters to make the top and it measures about 60” x 78”. If you would like to make one of these, check back in a couple of days. I’m writing the instructions now and will post them on Wednesday.
