True confessions .....again
So all the blocks (with a few exceptions like the suffrage quilt) that you have seen me do over all these years have been from the exact SAME two patterns. This is the 11" pattern and I have a similar one for 6" block.. It's so simple that it is mindless...combine all the As, all the Bs and all the Cs. and assemble. I stack and whack and turn out a pile of blocks in no time at all.
I initially got this pattern off the Internet years and years ago and the site has been long gone. I have tried others methods but for me this is the fastest and easiest way to get to the fun stuff....embellishing..
It was more evident in the Morris quilt blocks because I deliberately used the large check on the exact same piece on every block as it will be part of the continuity from block to block.
