Four BOMs for January

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.

Just made some striped blocks. I like the black part. I think I will try that design too.
