Colors: Center Cross - Bright and bold (your choice), center cross outer blocks -low volume, outer triangles-"text" print
The tutorial on Wooden Spoon Quilts is amazing. The instructions are clear, and each step is accompanied by pictures. The original block is adorable at 4 1/4". I chose to resize the block to something a bit larger (13 1/4"). For this block, I used the following sizes:
(2) 3 1/2 square center color - a bright, bold color
(1) 9 1/2 x 3 1/2 center color- a bright, bold color
(4) 3 1/2 square low volume
(2) 7 1/4 square "text" print
Excuse the wrinkles!
Here's a photo of how I pressed the seams.
I made the smaller version from the scraps.
I made a second block to check the measurements.
For this block, I experimented with scrappy around the center cross. I think it would work better if the two darker squares were lighter, it blends too much with the center.
Tip: For the blue block I cut the center 9 3/4 x 3 1/2 and then trimmed. I also cut the outside squares at 7 1/2 square and trimmed. Either way, both blocks are 13 1/4" square.
So my question for you is: What color are you most resistant to use in your quilts?
