The forum event for this quilt block is over. The fabrics our forum members used make a wonderful scrap quilt, but you can alter the selections to suit your own tastes.
You'll need sixteen 2" squares of 100-percent cotton, pre-washed fabric for each quilt block:
- Exactly three (3) squares must be black, either a solid or a black-on-black print
- Do not use white or cream fabrics in the block; prints with a white or cream background are fine
- You must use at least four (4) fabrics in addition to the black
- Your fabrics must be at least two (2) different colors (no monochromatic color schemes)
The block (and the use of the black squares to tie it all together) was inspired by Kate's setting for a batch of scrappy 16-patch swap blocks.
