Thank you so much for stopping by to visit my blog today. I trust that you have had fun visiting all of the other bloggers participating in the tour.....I know I have! It's been hard waiting for this day to come for the big reveal of my original block, but here it is.....I hope you like it! Here's...........
Good Time Charlie
|Good Time Charlie|
Fabric from Little Pink Stars
Good Time Charlie (block # 262 on page 56) may look harder to piece that it really is. The four corner units are very simple to make and the angles of the Half Square Triangles will help to create a fun secondary design as you'll see in the quilt below. The center of the block is a simple square-in-a-square made with the wonderful and versatile connector corner. The center units with the larger blue print can be pieced with a template or you can use the Tri-Recs ruler (from EZ Quilting) as I did. Once the Tri-Recs unit is made, you just add two pink connector corners. That's it!
I thought perhaps you would like to see what Good Time Charlie looks like in other fabrics.
Here are a few ideas.
