Block Party Entry


I wasn’t going to enter the Block Party at Quilt Story – I didn’t think I had any existing blocks that fit the bill, and I had too many other things going on to make one just for this. But I’ve been seeing all your posts with the blocks you’re entering, and I decided I couldn’t sit this one out. I guess peer pressure still works on me. If you all jumped off a bridge wearing nothing but your Flea Market Fancy yardage, I’d probably do that too.

So anyway, here’s what I came up with. I’m calling it “Photo Corners” because that’s kind of what it reminds me of. It’s basically a log cabin, but the logs have some bias piecing. I just sewed strips together like you would do with bias binding (lay them perpendicular, right sides facing, and sew across them diagonally). Voila!

Now go look at all the other pretty blocks at Quilt Story. I wish I had time to do a traditional one.

    Looks great Lee! A good way to use all those extra little bits of leftover binding. The whole block reminds me of those old-fashioned accordion-style cameras (excuse my ignorance with the name!)

    Thanks for the crazy visual!! I love this block, and the name is totally appropriate, too – photo corners were the first thing that came to mind for me too!

    HAHAHA that made me laugh. But count me in on the peer pressure front – guess what I'll be up to tonight instead of (or in addition to) finishing something else!

    Love your block.
