Quilt Block - Verna

Hello everyone!  We are all so looking forward to spring! It won't be long now! We changed time today so we are getting closer to some wonderfully warm weather again!!

I am going to start posting some of my quilt block designs with directions so I can share some of my favorite designs.  All of my designs use my shortcut block methods so you will need to learn how to make them.

 This week I am going to share one of my Sampler quilt blocks. This is my original design.
 I have a hard time naming quilts and quilt blocks so I chose to use old fashioned ladies names for these quilt blocks!!  You are free to use this design any way you like. I would hope tho that you credit me as the designer.

  My first block I created I called my Boston Block. It is one element in the Boston Star quilt block. This unit is so much fun to use to create lots of great easy to make designs.
You can see the directions for this "Block" above in the pages.

  I use a 6 x 6 grid mostly. this means there are 6 rows with 6 blocks in each row. or 36 "blocks" or pieced squares in the design.

                                          Verna  - named after my grandma

This is the layout of the pieced square units. 
6 rows of 6 "blocks" or units
Just make the boston blocks and half square triangles in the colors needed. Make sure you pay attention to which side the red needs to be on in the Boston Blocks

18 White/green hsts   
 8 Red/blue  hsts      
2 White/blue hsts   

      4 Bostons with the red on the right   
 4 Bostons with the red on the left

If you have any  questions feel free to contact me  thanks Rhonda Woodsmall
