The April challenge is another block lottery! The more you make, the better your odds of winning a bunch of blocks!
This time, we’re making scrappy Japanese x and + blocks, (10½” unfinished or 10″ finished). Here is a photo of Amy’s sample:
For a 10″ finished block, you’ll need:
- two 2½” squares and one 2½” x 6½” strip for the centre cross;
- four 2½” squares for the ends of the cross;
- four 4½” squares for the X
- eight 2½” squares for the background triangles
Go ahead and make as many as you like – you probably won’t be able to stop at just one! In fact, the tutorial notes that these blocks chain-piece very nicely.
Dig in your scrap bin and have fun!
