I'm always on the lookout for easy quilt blocks - something that sews up really quickly. Makes me feel I've achieved a lot in a small space of time.
Kathi, from Runnstitch, shows how to make a quilt block that combines light, medium and dark fabrics. Included in the tutorial are fabric amounts and cutting instructions to make a 36" x 36" lap quilt. The photo above shows one layout. Check out the tutorial to see other combinations for this versatile block.
Like Kathi, you can whip up a quilt top with a favourite fabric collection, or get creative with scraps from the stash.
