Black and white quilt next blocks.

This is the second block I learned to make in my black and white quilt. It is a sixteen patch and much easier than it looks. I just cut two 2" strips of fabric, sewed them together and then cut across the two strips to make 8 2x4" block. Then I turned them so that one black block would be against one white block. I sewed these together and had four blocks alternating. Then I sewed those four blocks together and viola - a sixteen patch.

This block is a combination of the techniques I learned with blocks one and two. Two big blocks sewed to the 4 patch.

My goal is to post a couple of blocks a day and then - the final result! I hope I can do it!


  1. Those blocks look even better in photographs! It's funny how the "distance" of a photograph can show you something different than seeing it in real life!
