Hi everyone, welcome to Block 11 of the Beginner’s Quilt-Along (QAL). If you’re new here, you can join the QAL at any time. Sew at your own pace, the tutorials will be available indefinitely. See the main Beginner’s QAL page for more information and additional links.
Pat Sloan is quilting along with us too. She’s making three sets of blocks using her gorgeous Eat Your Fruits and Veggies fabrics. Check out Pat’s blocks on her blog.
Don’t forget to upload your completed block to the Flickr group each week for a chance to win prizes. Winners are chosen randomly from the completed blocks submitted by 2:00 p.m. EDT on Wednesday. Check the UPDATED Sponsors and Prizes page to see all the goodies.
Block 11 – Read Books all Summer
This week’s block is Read Books all Summer. It has five quarter square triangle (QST) units and four squares. The QST unit is often referred to as an hour glass block. Here’s a scrappy hour glass quilt I made for my sister a few years ago:
A note about block colours: I chose to represent this block in 3 colours; however, you could make your QST units scrappy if you wish.
