This is one block from my quilt called The Quilting Gathering. This particular block is a favorite of mine. It's commonly known as a square-in-a-square-in-a-square, but it's real name is "Humility" for good reason! The more layers, or squares to add on, the harder it is to be accurate. Fear not, dear readers! I have a paper piecing pattern for you! It is very easy and oh so accurate to paper piece this treasure. I promise!
(In case you were wondering about the fabrics I used in this block, the pink is from the Miniatures collection by Julie Hendricksen for Windham, and the black is from the Civil War Chronicles collection by Judie Rothermel for Marcus Bros.)
I thought you might enjoy seeing what some of the Prairie Women from around the country are creating in their club. The next three photos are from the PWSC club held at Adel Quilting & Dry Goods shop in Adel, IA.
This is a quilt called Heartland Crossing. Gotta love a traditional & scrappy Log Cabin block!
Here is a closeup of the scrappy fabrics used in this quilt.
The photo above, of Heartland Crossing, was sent to me by Prairie Woman Karen Wood. She told me that she had leftover scraps from making the original quilt, and made four additional Log Cabin blocks. She didn't have enough fabric to make them full sized, so she just Make-do with what she had, and made the blocks smaller! Then she used the throw away scraps (of the connector corners) from the Flying Geese border to make the little Half Square Triangles seen in the sawtooth border. Don't you just love it! It's soooo cute! Great job, Karen!
