|Prairie Queen quilt block|
She didn't have a lot to say this day just that "Early quilts were nearly always pieced in the yellow and brown shades of gingham and calico, symbolic of the harvest. The field of golden grain doubtless inspired the design."
This block is so easy you don't need to download a pattern today! It is available in BlockBase as #1656 but the four patches are going different directions.
Again, I made a 6" finished block.
4 half square triangles-finish at 2" so 2 1/2" is shown
4 four patches-finish at 2" so 2 1/2" is shown
1 2 1/2" square of background fabric
Note- the four patches can be made from 1 1/2" squares or strips
Sew the units together like the block above and you are done!
UPDATE- My block is made according to the block Nancy Cabot published. I agree that it just looks wrong but here it is as she published it-
