Quilters Recipe Box Variation for Square in a triangle - Aunt Dinah from Pamela Quilts

Sorry to be running late with this post, my wrist was achy yesterday, making typing very difficult!  After a bit of rest it feels much better and I am ready to go with this week's block - Aunt Dinah.  This block uses Quarter Square triangle units along with the Square in a Triangle units.

You will need three fabrics for this block, a background, a dark and a contrast.  I went with green for my background and I love it!  The fabrics shown were provided by Island Batik.
(Sorry for the rainy day pictures.  I need to work on my ...

Quilter's Recipe Box Unit 10 - Alternate block 2 - Criss Cross from Pamela Quilts

I'm baaack!  Wow, it was kind of nice to have a week off!  It gave me a little time to catch up and work ahead on my blocks, so I am actually ready for the end of the year.  I don't know about you, but it's a lot easier for me to start projects than it is to finish - and this is a big project to finish!  This is block 39 and there are 9 blocks left to finish out the year.  This unit is a challenging one to design with, but I came up with this ...

Quilter's Recipe Box, Twisted Star alternate for Split Half Square Triangle from Pamela Quilts

Happy Monday!  I'm running a little behind today, but I made it!  Today's block is another way of using the Split Half Square Triangle unit - the block is Twisted Star.

This one is quick and easy to make, so if you struggled a little making the Card Trick block, don't worry, this one will be a piece of cake for you.

I used 3 colors and a background fabric for this block.  Color 1 - cut a 3 1/2 inch square.  Color 2 - cut two 3 7/8 inch squares, then cut those in half for half ...

For this block ...

Quilter's Recipe Box, Unit 9 alternate block - Rolling Squares from Pamela Quilts

For the final alternate block this month I decided to use a version of the Flying Geese unit with only one flying geese (or goose?) instead of two.  As you can see, this gives yet another dimension to this unit!


Here is the breakdown for cutting out this block (9 inches finished)  Fabrics are Dotalicious by Island Batik!

One 3 1/2 square of a medium print for the center.  Four 3 1/2 inch squares of dark for the Square in a Square units plus twelve 2 inch squares of the background fabric and twelve 2 inch squares of ...

Flying Geese Unit - from Pamela Quilts

Welcome to the  second block this month for the Quilter's Recipe Box.  There are so many ways to use Flying Geese units that I had a hard time choosing, but this week I decided to make a block that I call Mountain Peaks.


I like this color way, but for this block I sewed I used a different color scheme!  To make a block like mine you will need to cut the following: Eight 2 x 3 1/2 inch squares of your main color, one 3 1/2 square and two 3 7/8 inch squares of your ...
