Patched Works 100 Blocks of Summer–Block 4

SUSIE_04 Block of the day: #4
Section:  Crosses
Featured Quilter:  Susie

Susie says:  I love how this block turned out.  Even with a quarter yard of Kaffe's fabric, there is so much happening with color and pattern.  Of course, a yard of more is exciting for me!  I'm so glad I have collected Kona solids.  I have no idea which green this is but we have a color card in the store and carry the whole collection so no worries when I need more!  I created a strip set with the woven stripe and sub-cut it into four 2-1/2" units.  I felt it would be quicker for me and more accurate.  Lots of pieces in this block, so it is a true test of your 1/4" seam.  It is playtime!  I hope you enjoy creating it as much as I did.  Stay tuned for Kaffe and cantaloupe...a crazy challenge I accepted!

Additional bocks made by Mary & Jen

Jen says:  Wow, this block of mine does not have the best fabric choices!!  While the center was a great place use a fussy cut fabric, I could have picked a better center!!  I think my bock shall be named….BRAINS!!!
