I got a BOM made for November--just one more to go to meet my goal of 20 blocks! I already have the sashing fabric picked, so I'm almost ready to start putting them together. I liked the block from Quilter's Cache called Home Circle because it had a technique that none of the other BOM's have used yet. The instructions show it made in one main color plus a background color; I used three colors plus a background color. I used the same red I've been using for the center, a red and navy print for the 4-1/2" circles, and navy print for the squares that make the ring around the center square.
To make the block using more colors, I cut twelve of the 2-1/2" background squares, and eight of the 2-1/2" navy squares. I cut the 4-1/2" squares from the navy and red print. I sewed one of the background squares to the corner of the 4-1/2" squares
and then sewed a navy square to the opposite corner. You sew on the diagonal line you drew on each square.
and press the remaining triangle to the outside. It should look like this:
Trim the excess fabric and press the triangles out and you have something like this:
Here's a picture of the completed block:
On page two of the instructions, there is a link to a quilt that is made from different bright colors with a light background that would make a cute scrap quilt. On page one, it tells you how many blocks will make a Project Linus quilt which would be really cute.
