This month we're making what I'm calling a patchwork mosaic block, using the color palette below.
These block are basically 9 patches made of 4" units that will measure 12.5" unfinished. Each block has between 0-3 pieced blocks, the rest being unpieced patches. Use pattered fabrics, please, no solids. Decide on the arrangement for your blocks and cut the needed number of solid patches to 4.5" square.
For the pieced blocks, you can make any block you want to that is 4.5" unfinished. There's always a 4-patch, start with 2.5" squares. Or there are a bunch of blocks you could make from 2.5" HSTs.
You could make a log cab or court-house steps block from 1.5" strips. You can make almost any paperpieced block by scaling it down appropriately. Keep it simple or be as ambitious as you like. Have fun!
Arrange your pieces randomly and sew together into a 9 patch measuring 12.5".
