Block 33 - Illinois RoadAlthough I said yesterday, I thought the Modern version of this has more character, that doesn't mean I don't like this one too! I can see this being a fun border on a quilt or one row in a row quilt. It has nice movement and most of all, it's easy!
|These orange and yellows really are bright! But looking over my blocks, I think I was lacking in the brighter blocks! We're only half way done with the quilt, so there will be many many more bright ones. These won't stand out too much!|
- From both the orange print AND yellow print, cut 4 - 2" x 3 1/2" rectangles.
|You'll need 4 each to make this block.|
|Sew an orange and yellow along one long side. Press to the dark. Make 4 units.|
|Lay out the units as you want the darker fabric to "spin" and sew together like a 4-patch. It will be 6 1/2" unfinished.|
