|Barrister's Block quilt block|
"Nowadays it probably would be done in quieter colors unless the added warmth and color contributed by flaming hues are desirable in your scheme of interior decoration" Nancy concludes.
I made this block 6" finished which made for some very small pieces. The half square triangle blocks are 3/4" finished!
I used a combination of techniques to put it together. I used paper piecing on the small half square triangles but not the large ones. You can print the paper piecing patterns here.
The large half square triangle blocks can be made from 3 1/4" squares when using the draw the diagonal and sew down each side method. It should be trimmed to 2 3/4" and finish at 2 1/4".
This block pattern can be found in Electric Quilt's BlockBase program as #1363.
