Old Kentucky Album
Get the Jan/Feb '10 digital issue for instructions to make the Old Kentucky Album block, Bonnie-style! This block uses 2" strips to make blocks that are approximately 8 1/2"x 8 1/2". Notice how the blocks in the quilt below look different depending on the values of the red and blue scraps.
Bonnie set her blocks into this 6 x 7 setting with 2 1/2" sashes and cornerstones. The inner blue border is 2". The pieced border is 4" made from 2 red strips that are each 1" wide with a 2" print between. The outer blue border is 2". The star blocks in the corners are 8". Note that these dimensions are all the finished size.
Use Bonnie's plan or come up with your own!
