I've seen blocks that look like this around the blogs and on Pinterest boards lately, I find it very appealing. I went ahead and designed a version of my own in EQ7, one that looks more like a plus sign and am calling mine "Think Positive!" It's an easy block, here are the rotary cutting directions for a 5" (finished) block and a diagram for a finshed quilt layout, (below) set block to block, that could be either a lap robe/throw or a baby quilt. The size could always be increased by adding sashing strips between the blocks, if desired of making the block larger. I calculated the finished dimensions for mine based on a 2.5" border on all sides.
|I gathered up a stack of charm squares and some 2.5" strips in happy colors.|
I will combine them with some soft, low volume background prints;
I was eager to stitch up a test block... cute!

It's almost summer... and the livin' is easy; right? Why not take it easy and stitch up a cute little quilt for yourself or for future gift giving? You'll have this one done in no time... think positive!
Life is Good!
