This months' BOM for the Bayberry guild is so easy I made four blocks. In fact, since one simply cuts out a 12-1/2 inch square of black and then sews together strips to make a 12-1/2 square, two can be made quickly. With the squares right sides together cut then on the diagonal and then sew the diagonal together -- there's ironing involved of course. After making the first pair I quickly made a scond pair. And then lay them on the floor in two different layouts. (They aren't sewn together, of course.)
I've seen this called Roman Stripe. One could make quite a dramatic quilt very, very quickly and use up a lot of scrap strips.
As usual I must complain that I can't seem to get true color with this camera. The black really IS black. I imagine many blocks will be brought to the Bayberry meeting later this month. No two alike -also something I like a lot about scrap quilting.
The mid-70s are a surprise! Part of me remains in the 50s -- age, I mean, not decade of 20th century. It's a joy ride, new experiences land in my lap and I've become a better quilter, poet, writer than I expected. It's a rich life for a person never rich financially. Hey, this is what the mid-70s are like!
