Long before Pinterest -- I found a beautiful antique quilt using this block (on point) in Navy and White. I saved a picture in my phone and did a quick sketch and forgot about it. Over the weekend, I scoured the internet to give credit to the antique dealer selling the quilt and was unable to find it. It was not a waste of time, because I had no idea there were so many antique quilts out there. If I ever do come across it again, I will post it right away.
The units are 4 1/2" (4" finished). Eight (8) HST's and Eight (8) Four-Patches -- that is it!
The layout is equally simple -- I used scraps of black and whites. The Four Patches used 2 1/2" squares.
Everyone has their favorite way to make HSTs -- whatever method you decide to use, they are 4 1/2" (4" finished).
Sew the units together to make the 16 1/2" block (16" finished). Great way to use up scraps! I am using the block for the 2013 Rainbow Scrap Challenge hosted by Angela at SoScrappy. So far, I have done the block in pinks and purples for the challenge -- and the black/white as extra because they are fun!
