This is only a Test

Do not adjust your monitor, I'm not starting a new project.  This is only a test.........maybe   ;-)


Liz, over at Quilterie, has named 2012 "The Year of Solids".  She emailed me about making this block at 5". Since I couldn't wrap my head around the measurements, (I'm an even kind of girl so a 6" block made more sense to me) Liz emailed me a picture of the vintage quilt. 

So I went home from work last night and made a few blocks..........I think the 5" finished is fabulous........ . .and isn't the cheddar and natural yummy??  Interesting how they look like different sizes by reversing the colors. 
Go for it!

So which one are you going for? or do you have a design that uses both? I do like the colour combination you've used, and it is such an appealing block.

Okay, we'll see what this "only a test" turns into! : )

The block looks larger with the light on the inside and the cheddar for the background.

ooooooh....just looking at those blocks make me want to make a two color quilt; and I like small blocks. I think small blocks make a quilt look a lot richer. Have to say I love cheddar, too.
